There are so many great reasons to attend a Christian college! But believe it or not, there are also terrible reasons to choose that route, several borne out of the idea of following our deceitful-above-all-things heart (Jeremiah 17:9). Why not ask the Holy Spirit to reveal the best reasons you’re choosing a Christian college over a public one? This list isn’t definitive or absolute, but it can help you better understand your motives.

As Jeremiah writes just before declaring the heart deceitful, “But blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.” (Jeremiah 17:7-9)

Our prayer is that you will find - like I did - the kind of campus to help you grow precisely like that.
