Principal’s Message

High School Principal’s Message

In anticipating the start of another school year, I reflected on our last year, remembering both high points and low. One of the memories I had was attending a cross country meet where our students were competing. Watching that meet, it struck me how much I used to love to run, but as the years have crept up on me, running has become a thing from my distant past.

I am reminded of another type of race in which we all are participants, regardless of our age. Paul encourages us in Hebrews 12:1 “Let us run with patience the race that is set before us.” Paul also reminds us in 1 Corinthians 9 that athletes who run in a race, do so to win. When running a race to win, we have to run every step with purpose and determination. We have to discipline our bodies, training them to do whatever is necessary to win. Paul tells us to run like we plan to win the race leaving nothing behind.

God calls each of us to a unique purpose. He doesn’t want us to be casual in our pursuit, but to run that race leaving nothing behind. This year, in all that we do, whether it’s homework, an athletic event, or something as simple as taking out the trash, let us each strive to do our best leaving nothing behind and let us “do it all to the glory of God.”
I Corinthians 10:31
