Good Student Me?

I have to say I am very proud of the way college has been going so far. The first two tests I have gotten back have been 102 and 100, and I have been scoring high "marks" on all my papers and other assignments. Now, I don't say all this to brag about myself. Ok, well maybe just a little. jk. But that's really not the point to all this. I've just been thinking about how much better I could have done in high school if I would have applied myself like I know I am capable. High school turned out fine. I got good anough grades. I'm here, in college so I must have done well enough in high school. But I never gave it my best effort, or I rarely did. Excelling in everything we do (or at least putting forth the effort to do so) is Biblical. Looking back on why I did not excel in high school, it all becomes quite clear. I tried applying myself to too many things and there were way more activities that got my priority over my school work. I think this is something a lot of people struggle with...too many committments. We need to be able to put forth our best effort in all that we do, but if we stretch ourselves too much, nothing will ever get our 100%. The other half of that is prioritizing. What is important to you? Or a better question, what should be imprtant to you? Are you, am I giving my best, glorifying God in all I do? Just something to think about. Have a great day everyone. much love becky
