I agree with Elijah’s argument. Often times, students (me included) don’t view school the way it should be viewed. Frequently asking, “When I am going to use this in ‘the real world?’” they question what is the point of completing all their homework. It’s true that you probably wouldn’t use all the things you learned in school in your future job, but there is a purpose for every single assignment. It teaches you perseverance. “Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us” (Romans 5:3-5). Schoolwork should be seen as more than mental growth. The struggles we face in our studies are growing us spiritually, providing us with hope.
