Walking with Jesus in the School Halls: How to Be a Light for Others
By Gavin Lewis
As children prepare to return to school, they have a wonderful opportunity to embrace Jesus’ teachings and be a light for others in their school halls. Imagine how the world would be if every student walked with compassion, kindness and love, just as Jesus did.
“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven” Matthew 5:16 (KJV).
We are called to be a light for others, just as Jesus was a light in the world. By showing kindness, love and respect to our peers and teachers, we illuminate the way for those around us and reflect God’s goodness.
Kindness is also a powerful virtue that can transform our school environment. When we choose to be kind, we mirror God’s love and forgiveness, creating a compassionate atmosphere that uplifts and encourages everyone.
Our words also hold tremendous power. Encouraging and uplifting words can brighten someone’s day and bring joy to their hearts. Let us choose our words carefully, spreading positivity and uplifting others.
By walking with Jesus in our school halls and being a light for others, we can create a warm and loving environment where everyone feels valued and cared for. By embracing compassion, kindness and humility, we can truly make a difference in the lives of those around us.
Let us shine brightly, just like the stars in the night sky, illuminating the world with God’s love and grace.
