The wicked run away when no one is chasing them, but the godly are as bold as lions. – Proverbs 28:1 (NLT)
School is back in session. There can be times when school simply feels overwhelming. The tests, the drama, and the busyness of it all can make you want to miss the bus some days. This week, we’re looking at some tips to help you become a success at school.
Tip #1 – Be Bold
It can be really easy to let the drama and the opinions of others influence you. Your history teacher might be speaking against Christianity and it seems like all the other students in your class agree with them. It might feel scary to voice your opinion.
There might be a student being bullied during band and it might really bother you. And you’re stuck trying to decide if you should stick up for them and say something in their defense.
In today’s Bible verse, it tells us that the godly are bold as lions. As a Christian, that means that you are bold. Even if you don’t feel like it.
God’s word is the truth. If God says you are bold then you are.
So today, if you’ve sat back and not stood up for your faith or others, challenge yourself to be bold. Don’t let the fear of others stop you from doing the right thing. Be bold!
As you step out and be bold, you’ll feel proud of yourself. You’ll probably also be surprised that there are other students who feel the same way as you. They were probably too scared to stand up for what was right. As you are bold others will follow your lead.
