Can life be compared to a school? Are we to use our life to learn some important and vital lessons?
Comparing life to a school is a good analogy. Parents teach us. Friends teach us. We have created many schools to teach us. Life itself teaches us and it has been compared to a school of hard knocks by many.
What are we supposed to learn?
The real lesson that we are supposed to learn is to love. We are supposed to learn to love God, to love that his ways of doing anything is the best way, that obeying God works toour present and everlasting happiness.
Since God’s ways are the best and what really works in the long-run, then we should be loyal to him, no matter what anyone else says, does, or offers us. If anyone else says different than God, they are a liar and wants us to end up dead. They make bad choices for themselves and want us to do the same. Let us not be fooled!
God loves us so much, cares for us, and has purposed to give us so much. What he offers
In the world there are many different schools of thought, so we have to check and make sure that the schools we go to are ones that will bring us where we want to go in life.
Make sure that teachers are teaching us the right subjects. Make sure that our friends, our fellow students also want to go where we want to go. Some students don’t care, some cheat, some are lazy, therefore we should not let these kind of students influence us. They make bad choices but we don’t have to follow their ways.
We are in school to learn. We want to pass. We want to make something of ourselves. Therefore, let us be good students in the school of life. Let us make the most of the time we are in school and later bask in the rewards of having been to the right school, forever!
