The Homeschooler’s Healthcare Reform Plan

The President’s healthcare reform plan has been the big news story all summer and it promises to continue headlining the cable channels right on through fall. If it passes, it will forever change the way healthcare is delivered and paid for in America.

But I’ll bet you didn’t know there is a special healthcare reform plan just for homeschoolers, did you? It doesn’t cost a dime and it’s available to every single homeschooler who loves the Lord. Sound too good to be true? Nope! Read on.

Proverbs 3:7-8 says in part, “…fear the Lord and shun evil. This will bring health to your body…”

Proverbs 4:20-22 says in part, “My son, pay attention to what I say; listen closely to my words. Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart; for they are life to those who find them and health to a man’s whole body.”

So first of all there’s a preventative healthcare plan available for us all. If we’ll fear the Lord, shun evil, pay attention to what the Lord says, listen closely to His words and keep them in our heart, we’ll be healthier for it.

Proverbs 16:24 tells us, “Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.”

Malachi 4:2 says in part, “But for you who revere my name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings.”

So there is healing to be found for those who revere the Lord’s name and who speak with kindness.

And of course we’ve had a preview of the greatest physician of them all in Matthew 9:35. “Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness.”

And Luke 6:19 says, “…and the people all tried to touch him, because power was coming from him and healing them all.”

So we have access to a primary care physician who can cure EVERY illness and heal EVERY sickness.

Because we live in a fallen world and because God’s Kingdom has not yet been fully manifest, things on earth are not yet entirely as they are in heaven. We still suffer from disease and we still suffer accident and injury. And yes, we still need a good family doctor and good health practices.

But we also have access to something more than those who live without Hope. So regardless of what congress decides to do about America’s healthcare system, let’s remind our children today that we have our own healthcare system. Remind them that while we wash our hands and get our immunizations we also hold fast to God’s principles and live by faith in the One who bought us.
