Was it yesterday that the children rejoiced (and the parents mourned) over the last day of school? Now Labor Day--the official end of summer--is past and school is in full swing. Teachers (and students) already know who is prepared and who is not.

In all of life, preparation is essential. You are running late if you are still gathering classroom supplies, backpacks, lunch boxes, and school clothes. It is not too late, however, to gather the elements which help develop spiritual vigor and boldness. Summer is over, the interruption of routine schedules less frequent. Are you prepared for a spiritually vital life this fall? Here is a checklist.

Contrary to what you may have thought, this article is as much for adults as for kids! Each of us must be prepared if we are to reflect Christ in our daily walk. Teaching and learning must never stop (Matt. 28:19-20; 2 Pet. 1:5-10). Do your soul a favor--as you go back to school or back to the workplace after a busy summer, go back to Bible School too!
