Serving the Lord Through Learning

This is the slogan I've created for my classes this year. Being a student is hard work: studying, collaborating, remaining courteous, focused and organized. It is a service to the Lord.

The scripture I have chosen as our theme is Philippians 2:14-16

Philippians 2:14-16 King James Version (KJV)

14 Do all things without murmurings and disputings:
15 That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;
16 Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain.
Another way to think about our verse.

Philippians 2:14-16 The Message (MSG)

14-16 Do everything readily and cheerfully—no bickering, no second-guessing allowed! Go out into the world uncorrupted, a breath of fresh air in this squalid and polluted society. Provide people with a glimpse of good living and of the living God. Carry the light-giving Message into the night so I’ll have good cause to be proud of you on the day that Christ returns. You’ll be living proof that I didn’t go to all this work for nothing.

Fret Not Yourself (New School Year? Be Calm and Carry On)

and don't forget to delight thyself in the Lord!

fret not
do good
commit thy way
cease from anger
wait upon the Lord
the meek shall inherit the earth
the Lord upholds the righteous
show mercy
the steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord
depart from evil do good
speak wisdom

The Holy Bible (KJV) _ Psalms 37 

It is a new school year--it is going to be great! Promise! MzT 8/11/18
