Some Encouragement…

…for those who don’t enjoy highschool or are ready to drop out because it’s “too hard.”

think of school like this:

For elementary and some highschool students, school is your first “job.” You work during the week and have weekends off. Your payment isn’t money, it’s your grades. In a job, the better you work at it and the more effort you put into it, you will feel good about your work and there’s more of a chance you’ll get a raise. In school, if you work hard, do your best, and put extra effort into it, you’ll get better grades and will have a good conscience. (you won’t have to worry “oh, did i do that assignment?” or “I hope I pass this test/quiz”)

In the long-run, doing well in school will help you get a better job (and get into a good college.) I don’t think a bank would hire someone who can’t correctly calculate, or a newspaper company higher someone who doesn’t use correct grammar. No, you can’t be perfect, but you can strive to do your best.

Challenge yourself to do better. Put down your phone and study. Stop watching TV and get out your books. Even if it takes all your time after you get home from school to do your homework, stick to it! You will be glad you did.

Psalm 111:3, “His work is honourable and glorious.”

Proverbs 18:9, “He also that is slothful in his work is brother to him that is a great waster.”

James 1:5, “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given him.”
