4 Important Biblical morals to succeed in school

Bible verses for High School and College Students

Four important Bible verses that can help you succeed in school

1. Probity at home

Proverbs 12:22
“…The LORD is pleased with those who keep their word.”

Truth is truth and half-truth is dishonesty. Probity is the quality of having strong moral principles. It’s being honest even when no one is looking and decent in all actions. Cheating, on the other hand, is stealing. God sees all and rewards those He delights with.

School Impact: When you’re always honest at home, you’ll be honest in school and you won’t cheat your way – you work hard and God rewards you!

2. Submits to authority

 Colossians 3:20
“Children, obey your parents in all things, this Pleases the Lord.

A parent’s role is important to God. He requires children to submit to them while they remain in their care. Exodus 20:12 Ephesians 6:1 tell us to revere parents, showing kindness especially to the elderly (1 Timothy 5:4). When we do what pleases the LORD, He gives success to our endeavors. (2 Samuel 7:29)

When you’re obedient to your parents, you’ll likely submit to authority in school, which means you will do the work your teacher tells you. When God is pleased, expect blessings!

3. Be helpful at all times

Proverbs 19:17
“If you help the poor, you are lending to the Lord — he will repay you!”

“Entitlement” is prevalent because most have easy access to technology and the “little comforts” in life. Being exposed to community outreach can drive young people to study harder (NCBI). In fact, Ivy League schools now require scholarship applicants to have community involvement aside from having good grades and strong SAT.

“God will repay you” when you help the poor – let that sink in.

4. Daily Quiet Time

Matthew 6:33
” Seek first God’s kingdom and what God wants. Then all your other needs will be met as well.”

We must do our part to succeed – study, work, and do our daily devotional (prayer and reading of God’s words). However, with wrong priorities, “quiet time” with God often takes the back seat.

In this verse, we are told to seek God and His righteousness. Interestingly, “righteousness only comes through Jesus.” Ultimately, it’s all about putting Jesus first in our lives.

When you put God as your “first agenda” for the day – He will surely honor the rest of your day!
