Here are some cool lyrics for a soundtrack to your studying and exam-writing this week:

‘The sweat upon your forehead, it did not fall in vain / it didn’t fall in vain…’ (Beatenberg – Rafael. Listen here: http://bit.ly/1Gun029 )

When I was at school some of the stuff we were learning seemed so useless to me and my friends. It felt awful to put a whole lot of effort and stress into something when it was hard to see how it mattered.

God calls us to be obedient and work for His Kingdom whatever we do. That includes being a student! – even though the content can seem pointless sometimes. I can do the work God calls me to by working hard.

It isn’t in vain.
