A new school year promises new adventures, challenges and friends — as well as new classes, homework and lessons. But the most important (and simplest) lesson we can learn is summed up by 19th-century hymn writer Jane Eliza Leeson:
Savior, teach me day by day
love’s sweet lesson to obey,
sweeter lesson cannot be,
loving him who first loved me.
“We love because He first loved us.” 1 John 4:19
At LFCC, we are praying for our students (and ourselves) throughout this coming school year to learn this lesson above all else.
