Back To School Questions (and the ONE Question we should be asking)

Back To School Questions (and the ONE Question we should be asking)

School is about to begin, and we are all asking lots of questions:

  • Will they like me?
  • Is my first-day outfit insta-worthy?
  • Does my new haircut make me beautiful?
  • Will I have fun, make friends, find a significant other?

—Or, (for parents of school aged kids): 

  • Will my kids thrive?
  • Will my daughter be accepted?
  • Will my son be successful in sports. 
  • Will I fit in with the other moms?

Friends and sisters, let us pause right here and re-orient our hearts and minds to the better question:

Is Jesus worthy?

Because the answer is simple and living in light of the answer is life-changing. The answer is beautiful, absolute, simultaneously grounding and wing-giving. 

YES! Jesus is worthy!

Jesus is the One worthy of our attention. Keeping our eyes on Him gives us freedom from insecurity, anxiety, and self-focus.

Because when it’s all about our King…

  • Not only does he get the affection and devotion He deserves from us. 
  • Not only does he receive the attention from others as we point the people around us to the One we can’t take our eyes off. 
  • Not only does Christ become preeminent in our little worlds and his kingdom profound in our sphere of influence…
  • But ALSO, we find ourselves in peace. 

Let us turn our eyes upon Jesus as we prepare for the school season this year.
