I'm sending my children to the local public school. Many of my Christian friends say that I'm making a great mistake. Does the Bible have anything to say on this subject?

You won't find a verse in the Bible that tells you where to send your children to school. Let me share some biblical wisdom that will help you make your own decision with confidence.

I'll start by saying that the church I pastor once operated a Christian school. We had members of our congregation that used our school and members that did not. One of my goals as pastor was to make certain that none of our people felt pressured because of the decision they've made concerning the education of their children.

One of the most important things that I can teach the people of my congregation is to discover what God wants for their lives. They must not condemn those who make a different decision than they do. Two people can make different decisions and yet both can be right. You need to ask the Lord what He wants for your children (James 1:5).

Notice what these Scriptures declare.
Who are you to judge someone else's servant? To his own master he stands or falls. And he will stand, for the Lord is able to make him stand. One man considers one day more sacred than another; another man considers every day alike. Each one should be fully convinced in his own mind....

So whatever you believe about these things keep between yourself and God. Blessed is the man who does not condemn himself by what he approves.
(Rom. 14:4-5,22)
Your friends are not ordained of God to judge your decisions. The only one that you're going to have to answer to on judgment day is the Lord. Find out what He wants for your children and then relax with your decision.
