  1. Thank you for writing this. I was thinking about the same all day. We are so busy comparing ourselves to each other that we forget the greater purpose of our lives which is pleasing God.

  2. I was just telling my friend this at dinner. Thank you for sharing this with me. I tend to get judge harshly for Homeschooling my children.

  3. Humility is at the heart of being a Christian. Striving for humility will tend to direct our thoughts elsewhere instead of constantly evaluating ourselves (including comparing ourselves with others) and also instead of critiquing others. Striving for humility is learning to see ourselves for who we truly are. There is plenty of work for me to do in getting the log out of my own eye.

    One of the greatest blessings of homeschooling is that our kids are not growing up in the chronically competitive mentality of the traditional classroom. It is hard to shake that mentality once we have spent a good 12 years in it. It continues on, long after graduation day. In fact, unless we intentionally rid ourselves of it, it can last a lifetime.

  4. I’m sorry, but as a child of un-schooling I can’t just be okay with that lifestyle. It’s irresponsible and is neglect of your children.
