Do you feel a christian have to be practical/ diligent in his academic studies? I once saw a bookmark in a bookstore that read " I am a christian, but I still have to study". Do you agree with this statement? When I was in a Sunday church, I struggled with the idea as whether I needed to study as a christian student or I will be blessed to pass with Jesus' help without much effort and deligence. Are there any blble verses that encourages academic excellence, effort and diligence-even as a christian?
