“Going Back to School?” 

School begins soon. Here are several things all young people (High School, College, Trade School) should remember:

(1) Stay close to God—read your Bible and pray every day, Luke 9:23; Acts 17:11.

(2) Don’t forget God on Sundays and Wednesdays, Luke 4:16.

(3) Study every day, do your homework, be ready for “pop-quizzes” and finals will be a snap; begin themes and papers immediately upon assignment and finish early, Ephesians 5:16.

(4) Manage your time and money well, Colossians 4:5.

(5) Pick your friends really well, I Corinthians 15:33.

(6) Just because others may do wrong, don’t you do it, Exodus 23:2.

(7) Do not date someone you would not want to marry, I Corinthians 15:33.

(8) Pick good activities to be involved in, I Thessalonians 5:22.

(9) Serve God, Matthew 4:10; Romans 12:1-2.

              (10) FINISH (school)!  Ecclesiastes 7:8.

  (11) Have fun, Philippians 4:4; James 1:2.

And remember the words of Mark Twain: “I have never let my schooling interfere with my education!”

“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.” Proverbs 1:7.
