Back to School Tip #3 – Look for Opportunity

Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. – Galatians 6:2 (NIV)

This year has been a really difficult one. Most of us had no idea the effect that COVID would have on our world. And it’s easy to be so upset about how it’s inconvenienced our lives that we forget that others around us are hurting too.

So this year, as you go back to school, be sure to look for opportunities to help others.

Ask God to show you someone you could help or encourage. It might be a simple thing like asking someone to sit at your lunch table so they don’t have to eat alone. Don’t be afraid to go out of your way to help others.

As you look for ways to help others, it will end up bringing you joy. So be sure to look for ways to help others around you this year. It will help make your school year more fun for you too!

      It might feel like that sometimes, and sure you can’t ask someone to eat at your lunch table with you, but I bet there’s a way you can help someone. Can you do the dishes for your mom? Have a brother or sister that you could encourage or let them choose what to watch on TV? Have a neighbor you could mow the lawn for? Write a note to your grandma? These are just a few ideas. Ask God for His help too. There has to be something you can do to bless others around you!

      These times are very strange for many of us! Stay encouraged, there’s something you can do to bless those around you!
