A couple weeks ago we posted a similar article asking the question “Do Christian parents flirt with the idol of athletics”. Understanding our hearts have the ability to make anything into an idol, we are following up with an article asking the same question in relation to academics.

However, academic goals and pursuits can become an idol to us. This article has some helpful thoughts on balancing academic rigor and unhealthy goals.
