“A man’s pride shall bring him low: but honor shall uphold the humble in spirit.” –Proverbs 29:23
It is important that we take a close look and see if we have created a culture of pride in our educational systems. Are we creating a culture within our halls, and on our playing fields that misrepresent our core values and our mission? How do we address this ongoing concern in our Christian schools?
At Northside Christian Academy we are making an emphasis that our students clearly understand that they represent more than just themselves. Our administration, our teachers, our coaches, and our parents are partnering together in order to make sure that we are leaving a legacy for our community. We strongly believe that we need to help our young people understand Christianity is not about Me, but that it is about Him. Jesus is the only way that we can fight the culture of “pride.” Let’s teach our young people that life is more than money, cars, or what you wear, it is about what you are doing to help transform our world for Jesus Christ.
