I am planning my lessons for next week. This takes quite a bit of time, even for my young ones. But it is a total labor of love. So my arithmetic lesson this week is a wonderful example of why I love the Principle Approach so much. Princess G needs to work on her numeric place value to 1,000,000. She’s doing okay but we need to continue to reinforce it. I was studying the principles that apply to this concept and I just had to giggle when I think about how good God is. As arithmetic is orderly and predictable, so is God. That’s good to know. But there’s more!
When studying place value you see that each number has a unique value in relation to all the other numbers. WOW! It’s a picture of the body of Christ:
Eph 4:15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all
things, which is the head, even Christ:
Eph 4:16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by
that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the
measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself
God speaks to us all the time in His creation. If I wasn’t searching out Biblical Principles I would never have considered this. We all have value according to God. He considered us of great worth, sending His Son to die for our sins. This value is constant and consistent.
When we talk about place value this week we will discuss this scripture and place value will take on a whole new meaning for her. This is what PA is about: finding the principles that the subjects come out of. Who knew you could find place value in the Bible? God did!
I hope you will consider your Place Value and discover what treasures God has given you for the body of Christ.
