Scott Lamb and the bloggers at A Christian Manifesto.
I asked our panel the following question: “What words of counsel would you give to a high school graduate?” I told them to make no assumptions about the person being a Christian, but do assume that the person is open and receptive to counsel–in other words, they are not the “mocker” from the book of Proverbs.
As for my own counsel, I’d turn a graduate’s eyes to the words of Psalm 90: “So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom.” Ask the Lord to open your eyes to the big picture of what life is really all about, which the Psalmist declares is finding our ultimate satisfaction in God.
And, as far as “career counseling” for the young graduate, verse 17 of the Psalm is a good place of prayer from which to begin: “Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us, and establish the work of our hands upon us; yes, establish the work of our hands!” –Scott Lamb
