"I’m no good at math," Lucas said.

"Oh, cut it out," his mother said, "We have to leave for school in fifteen minutes."

"I’m not going!” Lucas yelled. "Math is stupid! I hate school!"

Have you had a fight like this one? Have you ever felt “no good” at something?

There’s hope for kids who feel "no good" at school. We can find that hope in the Bible. From the very beginning, God created each of us “good.” What’s more, as soon as God created people, he gave everyone important work to do. Take charge of the world, God said in Genesis 1:28. Schoolwork is an important part of taking charge. God cares very much about your work and about you when you’re at school.
