God's Goodness in All Things

While attending graduate school, our professor liked to say, “God is good all the time,” to which the class would respond, “All the time, God is good!” Difficulties and trials are part of the human experience, but Jesus Christ addressed this reality with his disciples in John 16:33 – “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” for nearly 2000 years, Christians have found comfort in those words, including the Apostle Paul, who could write while in prison “Rejoice in the Lord always. Again, I will say, rejoice!” (Phil. 4:4).


As we wrestle with the weekly challenges of operating a Christ-centered school, it’s good to remember that God is always good. We are grateful for the $1.1 million dollars that He has already provided for the new elementary expansion. Unfortunately, the weather hasn’t cooperated, but we are confident the building will be completed in God’s perfect timing. In addition, we are dependent on the Lord to provide the faculty and staff needed to run an excellent educational program. Because Berean Academy places great importance on biblical authority, any new staff and faculty must agree with our doctrinal statement of faith and must be able to serve as Christian role models to our students. This makes finding qualified staff more difficult, but this is the Lord’s school, so we depend on Him to call gifted men and women to the ministry of Berean Academy.


With nearly 350 students, we also value the parental partnerships we enjoy with Berean parents, who have been given by God the responsibility to train their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. When parents enroll their children at Berean, a partnership is formed so that we can assist parents in this task. The bolded words above are Berean’s core values, which guide our operations and conduct. In seeking to promote our core values, we recognize that anything we have achieved is due to God’s goodness. Berean has enjoyed a period of growth, and God deserves all the glory!
