Welcome Message From Our Lead Teacher...
One of my favorite stories in the Bible is when Elisha told King Joash to shoot his arrows. Joash only shot three and then stayed his hand. Elisha told Joash that he should have shot 5 or 6, for then he would have surely overcome his enemy, but because he only shot 3 times, he would only smite his enemy 3 times. Now that may seem strange, but it is one of my favorites because it reminds me that if I give my all God will surely come through for me. It also reminds me not to give up.
Ellen G White says in Prophets and Kings regarding this story:
“When God opens the way for the accomplishment of a certain work and gives assurance of success, the chosen instrumentality must do all in his power to bring about the promised result. In proportion to the enthusiasm and perseverance with which the work is carried forward will be the success given. God can work miracles for His people only as they act their part with untiring energy.”
This is my commitment to you as parents, students, and constituents of St Louis Unified School. We will be successful, but we have to work together and give our all. We have God’s promise and His promises are sure. Let’s make this school year one of the best yet!
