The Heart of Education
In Genesis 1:28 God declares that humanity is to carry on the creative work that He began. This call to “rule” and “subdue” is rightly understood as a commissioning of humanity to explore, learn, and develop the powers and potentialities of the created order. This continuing of the creative process was meant to both honor God and bless all of creation. Even though humanity and creation have since been tainted by sin, this “creative commission” remains. Every student is gifted with unique rational, moral, and artistic powers that he or she is called to develop and invest for the Maker. In doing so, students enter more fully into what it means to be human. Education, the process of developing and investing one’s gifts, is a sacred calling.
