The vision of Pinnacle Classical Academy is to graduate students instilled with a lifelong love of learning equipped for service in love to both God and man. One of my greatest joys in being involved in seeing this vision through at PCA in Little Rock is that our vision is one that others in our nation also hold. There are an ever increasing number of classical Christian schools in our country who are pursuing the same Christ-honoring, time-tested vision for the students they serve. One such school – and in particular one family from that school – has graciously shared their own lives concerning the value of pursuing a lifelong love of learning. And rather than summarize their story here, I want to simply link you to it for your joy in our great God. Before you click through to read it though, I do want to note that the story is a sobering reminder about the necessity of setting our sights upon that which is eternal rather than frittering away our time with that which will fade away. Nevertheless, I ought not to apologize to you for the fact that it is sober, since we certainly are commanded in His Word to “[be] sober-minded,” as we “set [our] hope fully on the grace that will be brought to [us] at the revelation of Jesus Christ” (1 Peter 1:13 ESV). This is not to say that we cannot also rejoice and be joyful, but instead to remind us that being sober and sobered are life-giving endeavors for the child of God.
Grace and peace to you this week from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ,
