There’s a reason why so many people look back on college as “the best four years” of their lives: You will never have more freedom than you do in college. Ask anyone with a mortgage, anyone with kids, anyone with a career. Those precious few years right after high school represent an intersection of personal freedom and opportunity that you should definitely take advantage of. It is a time in life that should be cherished and wisely spent. The author of Ecclesiastes understood that well. His advice to you: Have fun, and make it count.
“Rejoice, young man, while you are young, and let your heart be glad in the days of your youth. And walk in the ways of your heart and in the sights of your eyes; but know that for all these things God will bring you to judgment.” (Ecclesiastes 11:9)
As Spring semester gets underway, take time to consider the opportunities around you, and seize life. No regrets. One great way to do that through the BSU is our Spring Break trip to Arlington, Texas. We’ll be helping the people at Mission Arlington
as they reach out the Dallas metro area in a variety of ways. It’s a chance to have fun, make a difference in someone’s life and deepen friendships with the others going on the trip. Cost: less than a hundred bucks!
Another great opportunity: Collegiate Week 2014. We’ll be heading to Glorieta, New Mexico in August for a week of serious worship, teaching and fellowship with students from all over America. Cost: $250. Ask anyone who’s gone, it’s worth every penny.
And even if you don’t go on either of those trips, listen to the wisdom of scripture and make plans to do something special with the time you have left in school. It’s a small window and it gets smaller every day…
