This Monday and Tuesday were surely busy. We had 25 students coming and experiencing Belhaven. These days were for those that scored high on the ACT or SAT and would be interested in joining our Honor’s College. They were able to sit in on our Honor’s Colloquium, which is a central part of Honor’s College, as well as a second class of their interest. The purpose of Honor’s Colloquium is to challenge students by reading scholarly works, discuss issues related to our worldview, as well as writing essays related to the topic of the semester. Honor’s College is a forum for motivated students, in which they can deepen and expand their college education, both intellectually and spiritually. More information about Honor’s College can be found at http://www.belhaven.edu/academics/Programs/honors_college.htm.
If you believe God is calling you to go beyond the regular classes: Don’t hesitate to apply! What did God tell Abraham in Genesis 12?
"Now the LORD said to Abram, “Go from your country and your kindred and your father's house to the land that I will show you... So Abram went, as the LORD had told him, and Lot went with him... And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother's son, and all their possessions that they had gathered, and the people that they had acquired in Haran, and they set out to go to the land of Canaan." Genesis 12:1-5
God told Abraham to leave his house and his country, and what did he do? He obeyed. Abraham had faith in God, meaning, he believed that God would provide for him. If God tells you to do more than you are doing today, don’t hesitate to act!
Do you remember the Parable of the Talents in Matthew 25? The man gave talents to three men, all according to their abilities. One he gave five, another he gave two, the third he gave one. The first and the second one doubled their talents, the third one came back with one talent. The third man was called “wicked servent” for he did not do anything with what he was given.
We have all been given different kinds of gifts and abilities and Honor’s College is not for everyone. However, if you feel called to do it and you obey and multiply your abilities for the glory of God, He will say:
"Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master." Matthew 25:21
