"It's good for you to put such determination into your study, as long as you put the same determination into acquiring interior life."
Studying is very important to us students. We need to do it so we can get good grades, to get in to the schools we want, and to make our parents happy. Because we all know what happens when we go home and we have bad grades.
But do we make sure our spiritual health is fine or is it degrading due to school?
We may think that school is more important, but that is not the case. I know a lot of people who I asked why they didn't go to Church and responded with "I had a lot of homework to do." That is not a good excuse. Don't tell me that you can't give up one hour to go to Mass. We are obligated to go.
Also a good thing about getting good grades is the fact that we can go and hang out with friends or go to a party. Dose this party have things that you should do? Just because our parents let's us hang out or go to a party, gives us the green light to do things that we shouldn't.
We must always remember that God is watching us, with loving eyes. So we must make sure that we are always doing something that God would want us to do.
