If you asked me what I got in my high school Chemistry class, I would tell you, “An A and two C’s!” Why? Not because I took the class three times, but because I got the A and my two friends, who I let cheat off my homework and tests, got the two C’s! Unfortunately, when I was in high school, even though the teachers told us not to cheat, it wasn’t a big deal. I didn’t understand how my choices in school affected my relationship with Jesus.
