Edifying Education

"Blessed be the LORD… there hath not failed one word of all His good promise… that all the people of the earth may know that the LORD is God, and that there is none else" (1 Kings 8:56,60).  "Let such as love Thy salvation say continually, Let God be magnified" (Psalm 70:4).  "Train up a child in the way he should go… that thy trust may be in the LORD…  answer the words of truth to them" (Proverbs 22:6,19,21).  "Let all things be done unto edifying" (1 Corinthians 14:26). 

There is a way to edify
And rightly educate our youth
That demonstrates God cannot lie,
By showing His prophetic truth. 

Our education system now
Promotes an atheistic pride
That filters and will not allow
Our children to be edified. 

Let all who love our Lord's salvation
Bring forth the evidence ignored,
Establishing the firm foundation
Of truth that magnifies our Lord.

O Lord, the truth is obvious
Which many people are denying. 
As education falls to us,
Let all we do be edifying.
