These are a collection of my favorite bible verses about homeschooling. With the state of education in many countries today, it’s much better to get your children’s training started at home. There are encouraging Bible verses on homeschooling that show it’s much better for children to be educated at home.
Consider this, some schools in the world today have removed any mention of the Bible or use biblical verses in their instruction, even in countries founded on Christian values.
What Does the Bible Say About Homeschooling?
Children tend to copy each other, and what they copy is influenced by social media. Let’s face it. Most social media influencers do not care about sharing godly values. They would rather highlight what’s fun or popular, even if these things do not conform with God’s values.
So, as a Christian parent, if you want your children to be molded in righteousness, the best option is to homeschool your children.
Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.
The Bible says, “Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old, he will not depart from it.” So if you want children to grow up righteous, they must be trained to be righteous at a young age. And when they grow up, they will not depart from it.
It’s much easier to mold a child’s character when they’re young because you have their complete attention. They are eager to learn from you, and they will absorb what you teach. By their teenage years, they will have many competing influences around them.
I do not ask that you take them out of the world, but that you keep them from the evil one.
It’s going to be harder to make them listen.
So while they are young, teach them what you learn from the Bible. Talk of God’s will and His kingdom when you’re sitting in your house, walking around the neighborhood, when you tuck your children to bed, and when you wake up in the morning.
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
Place Bible verses all around your house where the children can clearly see them. This way they can memorize God’s word and keep it deep in their heart.
Teach them to choose their friends wisely. At a young age, you can influence them to spend more time with other children from families who share your values. You don’t have that luxury in a regular school.
If their classmates have questionable values, they will bring those values home. Bad company corrupts good character.
I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you.
And it’s not just classmates. Even teachers can share questionable values. You don’t have control over who influences your children. If they happen to disregard Christian morals, that’s what your children will receive.
For children to delight in the ways of the Lord, their teachers must be rooted in God’s Word. The only way to ensure that is to be their teacher.
Of course, you must ensure that you yourself are rooted firmly in Biblical instruction. Meditate on the Bible daily and take pleasure in learning from the wisest being in the universe. Be like a tree planted in streams of water that yields its fruit in season and whose leaves don’t wither.
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
Possibly one of the best examples of homeschooling is Timothy, the disciple of Paul. Timothy’s faith was molded by his mother and grandmother, Eunice and Lois. They taught him the Old Testament, molding his heart through godly instruction.
He grew up understanding that all scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, reproof, correction, and for training in righteousness. It prepares them to be competent and equipped for every good work.
But homeschooling is not easy. It will take a big commitment from the parents. Consider it an investment in your child’s future. Remember, do not grow tired or weary of doing good because, in God’s perfect time, you will reap the rewards of raising a righteous child.
And again, “I will put my trust in him.” And again, “Behold, I and the children God has given me.”
Reach out to other homeschooling parents and support each other in your efforts to raise good children. Seek God’s help when you grow tired or frustrated and always remember, you can approach him in prayer.
He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver, and he will purify the sons of Levi and refine them like gold and silver, and they will bring offerings in righteousness to the Lord.
Let us pray.
God our Father in Heaven, we thank You for Your Word that brings light into our lives and helps us grow in wisdom and discernment. It guides us into straight and narrow paths and never leads us astray.
Encourage every parent to consider homeschooling their children. Show them the rich benefits of overseeing their child’s education. Provide them with the means and help them overcome all challenges to homeschooling.
For those who are already homeschooling commend them and strengthen them so they can overcome the challenges that they will face. Give them unlimited patience, and overflowing abundance so that they will not be anxious about their finances.
Surround them with supportive friends and relatives and bless their efforts so that they can reap the rewards of the diligent work they put in. Give them a clear vision of their child’s future and show them how this aligns with Your purpose for the child’s life.
We thank You, Lord, for your infinite wisdom. May these parents find comfort and enlightenment in Your Word.
And may Your Word always be light unto their feet and lamp unto their path, in Jesus’ name we pray. And God’s people said, “Amen!”.

And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.
But let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth. For in these things I delight, declares the Lord.”
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight.
Take my instruction instead of silver, and knowledge rather than choice gold, for wisdom is better than jewels, and all that you may desire cannot compare with her.
Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.
For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.”
Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.
