This pattern is officially in testing and will be released at the beginning of August! I am knitting a second pair for myself...isn’t this yarn *gorgeous*? Check it out here.
This week I wanted to talk about something that I have learned over the course of my 19 years...but something that I am *just beginning* to grasp the importance of. That is, maintaining a biblical perspective and worldview.
For a brief overview, I was in public school from Kindergarten through Fifth grade. We started homeschooling when I was going into sixth grade, and homeschool up until graduation. Now, I am in college studying accounting.
My family is Christian, and mom always made it a point to choose cirriculum that supported that. This isn’t to say that other curriculum is wrong, it was just the decision she made. Thus, I was brought up with this biblical worldview, and to a certain extent, I didn’t know anything different.
Now, I could talk for *hours* about this subject, but the biggest point I wanted to make today regards science. I am currently in my summer semester of college, and even though I am studying accounting, I’m required to take one science/geography course. Now, science is NOT my strong suit. I did Biology twice in high school just for it count once (didn’t fail...just only completed the course once. Funny story there.), and it was extremely difficult for me. I didn’t have a good understanding. I am currently taking a geography course, and for the first time ever, I am *enjoying* it! I am learning a lot about things I can actually SEE. the sun, weather, etc. I am kind of a geek about all things weather :)
Also for the first time, my textbook doesn’t have a biblical worldview. Honestly, I am grateful for it. It has made me focus more on what IS true, but also understand what isn’t. I know in my heart that God created the earth and everything in it, but I honestly believe that it is important to see what others believe as well. We have the right as humans to believe what we want. I choose to believe one thing, but others might choose to believe another.
Here is what I want to encourage you with today. Seek the TRUTH. Always. It is there. At the same time though, learn about what others believe. This college geography class has taught me so much, and I am so grateful for it. Lots of things are true, and some aren’t. Don’t negate or ignore things *just* because you don’t believe them. Decipher and find the truth, then understand both sides of the story.
A couple of my favorite verses for the Earth’s beauty and creator:
In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and the word was God. John 1:1
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Genesis 1:1
By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible. Hebrews 11:3
For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. Colossians 1:16
All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. John 1:3
Until next time,
