As a school counselor, the
Bible is very relevant to how I will counsel the students that I will come in
contact with. I will be using God’s word as the light for my path as well as
informing and showing the students that He is a light to their path. The Bible is there to guide us so that we can understand the
reality (Graham, 2003). The Bible also helps us to deal
with and explore the reality that he is teaching us about. The Bible is there
to help us deal with all facets of our life. In school counseling, I will be able to integrate the Bible into
counseling sessions without mentioning the Bible, especially if it is a secular
school. Showing the children they are loved and
allowing them to have a voice and be understood is how God wants us to teach His
children. Also, being a good steward of
God, which is to teach the children the way they should go is why God created
teachers, counselors, etc. Being a good steward of God
means that we are functioning according to his guidance, which comes from the Bible,
hence the relevance this will have on being a school counselor.
