Survival Training for the School Jungle

By Charles R. Swindoll


Every autumn, another school year begins. Kindergartners tearfully kiss their parents good-bye. Children are placed back “on schedule.” Teenagers return to homerooms, gym class, pep rallies, and the old grind . . . as college students wave farewell and shout, “Send money!” Regardless of age or area, similar feelings take hold in each household. In many cases, young and tender lives are introduced to a whole new world of experiences and temptations and relationships. The Christian—both parent and student—often wrestles with these new encounters and asks, “Am I able to cope?” “Can my Christianity stand up under the pressure of such blows?” Let’s find direction and encouragement from God’s Word for the school years ongoing and yet to come.
