Weapons have their place, but in a homeschool...Yep, in a homeschool. We have a sword or two in our little classroom. They are sharp and easily wielded. We even have sword drills in our classroom. Now, I promise you we do not don our camo and act like a little militia. Really, we don't. I promise. I teach my kiddos how to use these weapons. I want them to know how to properly use them.
10Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
18Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
Yes, the Sword of the Spirit is a definite must have in our homeschool. We use it daily. Who knew? A weapon in a school.
