7 Bible Verses for Those Returning to School
For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven… – Ecclesiastes 3:1
And it is that time of year again: the days are getting shorter, the weather’s getting cooler, and empty schoolyards are starting to fill. As summer comes to a close and the school year begins, students from pre-K to PhD are gearing up for the academic – and social – challenges ahead of them. Here, we present snippets of God’s word to make the transition easier. Keep these in your minds and hearts to focus on what really matters in this new season!
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
– Romans 12:2
School comes with a ton of peer pressure. Even the season leading up to school is loaded with sales and ads – am I wearing the right style clothes, what about my backpacks, notebooks, pens? As you head into the storm, remain at peace that God is with you, and your identity is not in the way of the world, but in Christ. With a clear head, God’s Word will always keep you in the right direction.
