Favoritism and Partiality do not have a Home
at Nazareth Baptist School
Written by: Dale Thorne, Director of the Jerusalem Prayer Center
Favoritism and partiality do not have a home at NBS.
And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
"Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think". Romans 12:2 (NLT)
This generation of students is the most "connected to the world" of any generation in all of history. Through the Internet and Social Media they have direct access to everything happening around the world. This is certainly true of the NBS students. A recent article reported that Israel rates number one in the world in the number of Smart Phones per capita. This unlimited access to information has a profound influence on how students are taught today.
But it also has a tremendous impact on how we view ourselves and how we relate to each other. Through this constant bombardment of information we are encouraged to copy the behavior and customs of the world. We are carefully taught to judge each other according to external criteria such as beauty, intellect, possessions, social status or ethnicity.
God does not view us in this way and neither should we. "The Lord doesn't see things the way we see them. People judge by outward appearances, but the Lord looks at the heart". (1 Samuel 16:7b - NLT)
Please pray for the NBS faculty and staff that they will touch the heart of every student in such a way that they might "let God transform (them) into a new person by changing the way they think. Then they will learn to know God's will for (them), which is good and pleasing and perfect". Romans 12:2 (NLT)
Also, pray that the new school would be like modern schools.
