THIS IS WHY WE SEEK EDUCATION. WE SEEK EDUCATION AS PREPARATION FOR LIFE:
What will I eat? What will I wear? How will I live?
Preparation is a wise thing, as long as we’re preparing for the right things. While it’s wise to prepare for life, Jesus warned us about obsessing over the things he has already covered.If you doubt that, take a look at Jesus’ instructions in Matthew:
Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you – you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them.MATTHEW 6:25-32
He told us not to worry, but that’s exactly what we do: worry about things that take our focus
off of what’s important. Our worry is contagious, and it affects our lives and our future.
So what is the answer? Look at what Jesus said next:
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.MATTHEW 6:33-34
What if we’ve got it wrong? What if, in the name of social acceptance, we forget the most important thing?
What if, instead of seeking God’s kingdom, we seek first college, career, and money?
We believe this is happening – now – on a large scale. And what are the results?
According to recent research, as many as 80% of young men & women raised in evangelical churches
give up on their faith by their second year in college.
What would happen if we actually put into practice what Jesus taught?
What if we would seek first the kingdom of God?
Instead of rushing right out of high school into a college environment
that is hostile to faith, what if we were to take one year to put God first.
Transition One is a program dedicated to preparation for successful Christian living.
