The same is true in our spiritual lives. If we don’t deal with problems when they are small, they can become tremendously burdensome. But thankfully, God is in the business of providing new beginnings. He is willing to forgive the past and provide opportunities, blessing, and joy for the present and for the future. Lamentations 3:22-23 says, “It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.” In spite of our unfaithfulness, God remains faithful. God provides us with new opportunities each day if we but trust in Him. As we begin a new year, let’s challenge our students to take advantage of this new beginning, not only in their academics but also in their spiritual lives.
