Daily Fountain 2017 - Extra-Curricular Or Co-Curricular

Tuesday February 28

Bible Reading:     Rom. 8: 18 - 30

Topic:         Extra-Curricular Or Co-Curricular

In his Secondary School days, Edu never took sports seriously.

Whenever it was time for optional recreational sports, he went and hid himself in a Class Room and read books.

He thought he was doing himself good especially as at that time, curriculum experts called sports "extra-curricular activity"

So that word extra made him feel that it was not really part of education. But over time, he learnt that the curriculum experts because of the fundamental role of sports in learning now decided to call sports "co-curricular activity"

In other words, exercises are now an integral part of education. He wished he knew that when he was in Secondary School, he would have taken sports as co-curricular and not extra-curricular activity and surely he would have been healthier and learnt better.

Our reading today, informs us that the challenges of life we face or we may face are part of our training for manifestation.

They are not unconnected to our faith. Therefore when they come, we should prayerfully face them, trusting God to help us learn the inherent lessons that would make us stronger in the faith.

From today, begin to see the issues of life as co-curricular to your faith and not as extra-curricular activities.

Lord, give me the grace to overcome the challenges of life so that I may love and worship You better, Amen.

Memory verse:   Rom. 8: 1
"And we know that all things work together for good for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to His Purpose"
