Daily Bible Verse and Devotion – 2 Timothy 1:7

for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control. – 2 Timothy 1:7 (ESV)

We usually hear today’s verse in light of fear. However, it can help us with success also when it comes to school. Have you noticed in school sometimes it’s really hard to be present when your teacher is speaking? Maybe it’s a lecture on the most boring history period known to man and there’s nothing you’d rather do than check out.

Today’s verse mentions that we’ve been given self-control. That means we can control ourselves even when the teacher is boring.

Tip #5 – Show Up

Today’s tip for success at school is to show up. Your body might be in your seat, but often, mentally you’re checked out. You’re thinking about what’s for lunch or who might ask you to the dance.

Instead of letting your mind wander during class, be determined to show up mentally. It’s amazing how good you can do on a test if you’ve really paid attention in class.

So today, if you’ve gotten in the bad habit of not being present mentally, remind yourself of today’s verse. Realize that you have self-control and you can determine to pay attention. You’ll be impressed at how your grades will improve if you show up mentally to class.
