I have compiled a fair amount of material to serve as curriculum for when I open doors at TrinityTutors Virtual Academy, hopefully sometime in the year 2021. (Though I have now completely fleshed out the Forex trading system I intend to use to generate the necessary funds, I am presently committed to completing a major curriculum development project for a mathematics center in Singapore, and will therefore be unable to take full advantage of my system [or even part-time] until September at the earliest—hence my delay in getting started.) But given that I have a habit of forgetting about resources created a number of years ago, as I recall having written such material, I might opt to post it here to give me one more place I could potentially run across it again in the future—hence this “thread” of sorts. A while back I wrote lessons for teaching biblical truths about money via the Tabernacle, which I am likely to use at the Academy. I forgot about this, and might forget about it again, so I will post the first “truth” today, and the remaining five over the next week or two: The Tabernacle teaches us at least six biblical truths about money, the first being that… God doesn’t just ask us to give out of our material wealth. He also asks us to give of our time, energy, and skill (talents), as illustrated by the thirty-first chapter of Exodus… God spoke to Moses: “See what I’ve done; I’ve personally chosen Bezalel son of Uri, son of Hur of the tribe of Judah. I’ve filled him with the Spirit of God, giving him skill and know-how and expertise in every kind of craft to create designs and work in gold, silver, and bronze; to cut and set gemstones; to carve wood—he’s an all-around craftsman. “Not only that, but I’ve given him Oholiab, son of Ahisamach of the tribe of Dan, to work with him. And to all who have an aptitude for crafts I’ve given the skills to make all the things I’ve commanded you: the Tent of Meeting, the Chest of The Testimony and its Atonement-Cover, all the implements for the Tent, the Table and its implements, the pure Lampstand and all its implements, the Altar of Incense, the Altar of Whole-Burnt-Offering and all its implements, the Washbasin and its base, the official vestments, the holy vestments for Aaron the priest and his sons in their priestly duties, the anointing oil, and the aromatic incense for the Holy Place—they’ll make everything just the way I’ve commanded you.” I should probably also include Colossians 3:22-25 Servants, do what you’re told by your earthly masters. And don’t just do the minimum that will get you by. Do your best. Work from the heart for your real Master, for God, confident that you’ll get paid in full when you come into your inheritance. Keep in mind always that the ultimate Master you’re serving is Christ. The sullen servant who does shoddy work will be held responsible. Being a follower of Jesus doesn’t cover up bad work.
