This past week, I’ve spent some time meditating on Psalm 73. The ECS faculty meets before school three times a week to study scripture and to discuss academic topics . During a recent faculty morning devotion meeting, a teacher shared and quoted from this chapter as we were discussing how to live out what we are studying as a group. After reading this chapter in the New International Version, I investigated some other versions.
The Message version begins the chapter this way in verses 1-3, “No doubt about it! God is good – good to good people, good to the good-hearted. But I almost missed it, missed seeing His goodness. I was looking the other way, looking up to people.”
That hit me right between the eyes! How many times do I make people, ideas, or events my “standard” instead of going to the One who knows me, who lovingly created me, and who sees me yet still loves me? My Biblical worldview begins with verse 17 (The Message), “I entered the sanctuary of God, then I saw the whole picture”.
At ECS, we value “the whole picture” in our mission: Provide an exemplary learning environment to educate and equip students with a Biblical worldview who confidently engage the culture and impact the world for Christ.
Through our curriculum decisions, professional development training of faculty and staff, and commitment to partnership with parents, ECS strives to engage students with the truth of God’s Word to experience for themselves that there is no doubt about it – God is good!
