Integrity checks are happening now. The Bible says "And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men everywhere to repent." (Acts 17:30) So, it is safe to say that it is time to come clean and live the best everyday life that you can possibly live. We will be held accountable for our actions down here. God wants us to be joyful. God wants us to have fun. God wants us to be healthy and prosperous. But, God does not want us to wound people in the process of obtaining stuff. God does not want us to be a hindrance to others or to ministry.
If I didn't watch the news, I would not be aware of the crime happening in my community and throughout the country. After Japan's prime minister died, I saw their crime statistics. They don't have many shooting deaths like we do in America. I hear Japan's low crime rate comes with some flaws, but if it is saving people's lives and keeping people from committing violent crimes, I think that is positive.
We also must invest more in the front end of education. Teachers need to be paid more. We also need to make sure that people are sending children to school by age 5. If parents say they are homeschooling their children, they need to provide proof of a homeschooling network they are a part of. We owe this to our children. Sometimes homeschooling can lead to excellent reading outcomes, but at the same time, the math, Algebra, and Geometry skills may be lacking. I think we have fabulous parents, but they are not experts in all subjects unless they are teachers.
When I was growing up, I could see the collaboration between the teachers and my grandmother. She did not question the teacher's comments on my report card. These teachers were a part of our community. Some of them attended the church that I attended. They had also taught my mother, aunts, uncles, and cousins. Most importantly, they had worked with my grandmother who had been a cafeteria worker. If you know people, you know a lie when you hear it and you also know the truth.
Parents must go back to partnering with the teacher to raise their children. I don't think most teachers spend their time lying on students. I would hope that they have better things to do than that. A lot of individuals are called to teach. I realize we have skeptics who question this, but once they learn to follow God's instructions then they can believe that other people are actually doing what God called them to do the first time He said it.
