Well here we stand
half over (at least by school year standards…not necessarily weather charts or calendar )
we are at that point where we (hopefully) have
– recouped from a year of teaching
-and are almost ready to get ready for the next batch of students
perhaps this is a cycle much like the church calendar
it might look something like this:
well that’s my attempt
right now I’m on the edge of recoup and regroup
getting my thoughts together
how will I approach this next year?
how will I approach this next group of students?
how will I ready my heart and mind for bringing the gospel to a new class?
and the answer
to all three..
some bible passages to meditate on as you recoup,regroup and prepare
After three days they found him in the temple, sitting among the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions.
And God has appointed in the church first apostles, second prophets, third teachers; then deeds of power, then gifts of healing, forms of assistance, forms of leadership, various kinds of tongues.
[ Taming the Tongue ] Not many of you should become teachers, my brothers and sisters, for you know that we who teach will be judged with greater strictness.
Luke 18:15-17 [Full Chapter]
[ Jesus Blesses Little Children ] People were bringing even infants to him that he might touch them; and when the disciples saw it, they sternly ordered them not to do it. But Jesus called for them and said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs. Truly I tell you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will never enter it.”
