While browsing social media, I came across one of my “getting an A” success stories.
An intelligent young lass I once taught had become a community historian and author. I felt proud. My classes were a privilege to teach.
This young girl had an upbeat approach to life. She greeted the morning, welcoming sunny days, good friends, and lovely books. “Look,” she would say to the class. “God is great. I got an A in religion.
But how can someone like me do the same? I can wake up thinking about how great God is. I can appreciate privileges and smile with a cheerful heart. I have sunshine and rain for my garden. I have a good family, nice friends, and lovely birds to feed. I am a “have” in modern society, so I have no need to whine. I have a local faith community and online worship as well.
We can all receive As by being living witnesses to the love and healing of Jesus. We can aim to motivate other Christians and non-believers in a simple network of binding friendships. Jesus’ love and healing are still available to guide us daily. We can all do our part to shape tomorrow’s faith community.
Although imperfect, we can thank God for our privileges and seek His blessings. And as the hours of the day wind down, we can reflect on God’s grace.
How can you walk tall in your Christian faith to get an A in religion?
