A Message to Students

By Nagaland Post | Publish Date: 7/13/2020 12:38:28 PM IST

 My dear students, remember you are precious to God and to the society. We are all concerned about you. During this difficult time of pandemic you may be passing through a time of anxiety, even depression as the future is uncertain. But if you believe in God and have relation with your Creator you need not be worried or anxious because He holds the future. God says He has good thoughts and plans about you and He wants to give you a hope and a future. (Jer. 29:11)

If you are connected with God, wisdom and understanding will follow and you will know how to live wisely and know priority. (Prov. 9:10). The greatest problem of young students today is failure to know priority and wasting much time in unprofitable activities and hobbies. Some even spend four to five hours a day in social media, games, etc. which will have much adverse effects on year studies, career and spiritual life. You are young and immature and so you do not fully realize this now.Youmay realize only when it is too late. The pleasure of the present is so enticing and the world is so loud and glaring which will distract you from focusing on your career.

Remember, the commonest thing to happen is to be talented but not successful. It happens because you do not work hard to develop your full talent. Henry Ford had rightly said, “The harder you work, the luckier you get.” So you must work hard to become a lucky person.

The world is not a bed of roses. Without pain no good thing will happen. Either you take the pain of discipline or take the pain of regret. Unless you have self-control to overcome evil habits, laziness, wrong company, etc. and read hard you will surely bear the pain of regret later which cannot be reversed. Rise up students,overcome all your weaknesses and start reading at least five hours or more a day. Many of you read only two or three hours a day. At this rate how will you compete and survive in this highly competitive world? Why not form a habit of becoming a bookworm (positive sense) through this lockdown experience which will become a blessing in disguise for you? Remember knowledge is power and knowledge is the currency in today’s competitive world.

Finally please read the Bible daily which is the source of wisdom and understanding. Mahatma Gandhi’s life was thoroughly shaped by reading the Bible and the Beatitude of Matthew 5 was his motto in life. He recommended that even people of other faiths should read the Bible to get wisdom. Kushwant Singh a great scholar and writer read the Bible thoroughly and he often quoted the Bible. Reading the Bible will keep you from sinning and you will be walking in the light. (Ps. 119:9-11, 105). There will be great reward, blessing and prosperity by meditating and obeying God’s word (Ps. 1, Ps. 19). This tough time will not last long but it should make you a better person if you position yourself in the will of God. God bless you all my dear students. We all love you and expect muchfrom you to lead us.
