Lord you have examined me and you know me

"Lord... you have examined me and you know me"

Exams are a time of testing for both students and staff. We need them to demonstrate and validate the quality of the work we have done, but from a spiritual perspective the business of measuring human beings is fraught with contradictions.

Exams may bring anxiety, but they also raise questions: "what am I worth", "what is the source of my worth?", "how do I give worth to others?", "can one human being ever be measured as having more worth than another?" A powerful insight of Christian faith - and many other world faiths - is that we are valued and loved by God simply as human beings, and not because of anything we have achieved.

We hope you find some challenge, some comfort and some food for thought from these words.....

God's Complete Knowledge and Care:

Lord, you have examined meand you know me.You know everything I do;from far away you understand all my thoughts.

You see me, whether I am working or resting;you know all my actions.Even before I speak,you already know what I will say.You are all round me on every side;

You protect me with your power.Your knowledge of me is too deep;it is beyond my understanding.

Psalm 139:1-4 GNB (C) Bible Societies with permission
