Back to School

August 19, 2014

Life changes as the time to go back to school is here for much of the USA. Little children go to school for the first time, grade school and middle school kids are excited to renew friendships. High school students wonder what this year will bring for them. College students are making decisions that will determine their future. Teachers are looking forward to a new school year, hoping to be a good influence on their students lives.
Parents and grandparents watch and see their children getting older and hopefully wiser. We pray that all will have a great year, a time to study and get knowledge.
Christians no matter what age, are given advice from the Bible on how to obtain knowledge and wisdom. Whatever our stage of life, our year can be a time of going to “school” also. Think about the following verse today and pray for a year that will make us wiser and more obedient to our Savior.

2 Timothy 2:15
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
