Translating God's Word for a new generation
Do you remember when you graduated high school? Let me remind you. You were probably relieved that all your high school assignments were done. No lingering assignments to worry about, only the worry of “I hope I have a cool roommate in college.” You probably were excited to start being “on your own.” It was now time to make your own choices in life. No doubt, you will miss people when you graduate while other people you definitely will not. Grandma and Grandpa sent you a generous gift to commemorate the occasion and you are wondering what you will spend it on.
Maybe this was your high school graduation experience, maybe it was not. What is for sure is that whether you admitted it at the time or not, you needed someone to build into you. You needed someone to encourage you in an uncertain future.
