At the time of the school shooting in Parkland, Florida in February, the usual questions of gun control, pro and con spewed from the lips of Congressmen. Others advocated for a stronger police presence in schools. The list of solutions was endless.
As I pondered this dilemma, God’s word filtered into my consciousness. “My son, give attention to my words; incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your sight; keep them in the midst of your heart. For they are life to those who find them and health to all their body” (Proverbs 4:20-22).
We see so much death in public schools today. People have spent millions of dollars and untold hours to ensure God’s word is absent from institutions of learning. when all the while, God’s word alone is the one thing that brings wisdom, life, and health.
Almost fifty-six years ago prayer was removed from school. God was invited out of the classroom. Perhaps it is time to allow God’s word to be available again to those who would hear.
