His Sheltered Ones

I often hear the following argument against taking children out of public schools, colleges or universities. "But that would be to shelter them, wouldn't it?" And my response is, "So, who doesn't need shelter when it's raining bullets and bombs?" The very word "shelter" implies the need for it, a storm for example or raw elements of nature like cold or extreme heat. Then I read psalm 83 which only further confirms the idea that this is the time for responsible parents to take action to provide this sheltering protection for their children. "They have taken crafty counsel together against your people, and consulted against your SHELTERED ones." Psa 83 verse 3. "Crafty" implies diabolical, since the serpent in the garden was the most crafty of all the animals or creatures. And its crafty to imply that seeking shelter from extremity is a weakness rather than a strength. Of course what most people mean by "sheltered" in this pejorative sense is "shielded from the real world." To take the precious, impressionable lives of our children and grandchildren out of the harm's way of public education is to shield them IN a world that is MORE real, because ideally it is more connected to their own families who have the ultimate responsibility and accountability for their welfare.
