Back to School: Teaching the Next Generation

Let me begin by apologizing to all the school age kids here for using those three bad words in my sermon title. Nothing is more depressing to a kid than those words, “Back to School.” But the reality is this week all the Lynden schools are starting up again. No doubt for those of you with kids in school the new clothes are bought, the new backpacks are full of school supplies. It’s time to start teaching and learning again. Education is important. Without it life is pretty hard. Psalm 78 is known as a teaching psalm or an instructive psalm, it has something to say to us about teaching and learning. It comes with a warning about what happens if we don’t pay attention and learn what we are being taught.
