1. maybe you don't live in the northern hemisphere, and
2. so you aren't going back to school at the moment, or
3. maybe you're just not at school at all.
Perhaps I would have missed it too except that I, lover of lists and with a small hint from the title of the post, keenly observed the five point list. And so I read it.
The five points are:-
1. Thinking may be the most critical thing you ever do.
2. The most important book you'll read this fall is your Bible.
3. Someone younger than you needs you.
4. Comparison in the classroom can be the birthplace of pride.
5. Only the gospel saves anyone, even A-students.
They are great principles and they extend far, far beyond the reach of students in the classroom.
I especially liked point number two (but you already knew that) and most especially this part (emphasis is mine)...
Because of all the assigned pages, you’ll be tempted to sideline your Bible reading until the next test has passed, the next paper is done, or the next break is here. Instead, treat your time in the Bible like you treat your meal plan.
Your time soaking in Scripture will be the most fruitful and shaping time of your education. Nothing can replace the wealth you will find there, and nothing will prepare you better for life, family, vocation, or even your next class.
It is so easy to put off time in God's Word. I know. I really, REALLY know. But I am amazingly diligent with my meal planning. We eat every day. What a great aim to be so hungry for God's Word that it receives the same priority as meal planning.
Read the whole post here. It doesn't matter if you aren't going back to school this August. The principles still apply.
