When I first started college, the Dean came in and said “Good Morning” to all of us. When we echoed back to him, he responded, “Ah, you’re Freshmen.”
Then he explained:
“When you walk in and say good morning, and they say good morning back, they’re Freshmen.
“When they put their smart phones down and open their books, they’re Sophomores.
“When they look up so they can see the who’s talking from their smart phones, they’re juniors.
“When they put their feet up on the desks and keep reading, they’re seniors.
“And when you walk in and say good morning, and they write it down, they’re graduate students.”
The sooner you fall behind, the more time you’ll have to catch up.
Thought for the day
“We are each responsible for our own conduct” Galatians 6:5 NLT
Your choices are far more powerful than your circumstances. You may not like how complicated your life has become. But with few exceptions, no one is forcing you to keep your life complicated.
You have the power to simplify your life. In fact, God expects us to assume responsibility for our lives and to carefully choose how we spend our time.
