It’s the time that most kids and many teachers dread: Back to school! Soon the vacations, beaches, fishing trips, and picnics will be in the past. While we are tempted to let out a big groan, perhaps we should remind ourselves what a great opportunity lies ahead of us.
The Lord tells us that we should let our lights shine before men so that they may see our good works and glorify our Father in heaven (Matt. 5:16). That means every class meeting, every ball game, and every lunchtime is an opportunity to be a glowing example of Christianity in action.
After a summer of fun and adventure, it’s difficult to return to the books. As Christians, though, we can look forward to getting back into the public life that allows us to let our Christian lights shine. Will you be a light for Christ?
