There are so many things I can be grateful to the Lord for but a major one for me is School. The opportunity to get an education, and not just any education but a good one, is only a dream for the majority in Africa. Being on the side where you are getting an education can make you think that everyone is enjoying the same privilege but that is far from the truth. There are so many people who would love to get an education in my country, Zambia, but for one reason or the other, they are unable to. So I am grateful to the Lord for the opportunity that I have had to get an education.
I am always reminded and constantly remind others that God expects us to be good stewards of our education. Its one of the many talents for me that God has placed in my hand and far be it up to me I will work hard while I have it in hand. One passage of scripture that has enabled me to work hard in school has been Proverbs 14:23 that shows that all hard work brings a profit. I have proved the Lord true in this area time and time again.
God has been faithful to me in this area and I pray that I will be able to serve Him better with this gift. I pray and hope that I have led a good example for my younger siblings in this area. We, who live in Africa and are blessed to be able to go to school should never take it for granted. It is trully a blessing and all we need to do is just stand outside for 5 minutes and see the many young lives that are not able to go to school and we will realise that the one thing we often take for granted, we musn't because there would be a huge fight to take our place were it offered to others.
