Kudos to Elmwood for Adding Religious Studies | Opinion

Thanks to the Elmwood Elementary School Committee. I read the article in the Sentinel-Tribune regarding the LifeWise Academy offer of religious instruction (Elmwood will feature LifeWise Academy, March 23)

2 Timothy 3:15-17 of the Bible states (the Passion Translation): “Remember what you have learned from childhood in the holy scrolls which can give you wisdom to experience life eternal through the faith of Jesus, the Anointed. God imparted its very substance in every scripture, for it is inspired of God. He will strengthen you with his instructions and corrections, giving you strength to take the right direction and lead you deeper into the path of godliness. Then you will be God’s servant, fully mature and perfectly prepared to fulfill any mission that God gives you.

Our kids today are techno wizards, athletic, nail-edged superkids – and that’s great. But in the world we live in, they need much more than that to build their character and give them the courage for what lies ahead.

God bless you for your courage and determination to give parents a chance to introduce their young people to the plans God has for them through the study of the scriptures.
