A Heart to Teach – A Teacher’s Prayer (10)

As I was thinking about the next main topic of this series (the bounty), I was struck while doing my morning devotions. Reading through Paul’s epistles has brought me to the book of Colossians. Before beginning the book, I read the background information about the book provided in my Bible and was hit with the ...

A Heart to Teach – Service (9)

Since it has been a few weeks since the last post in this series, so let’s quick revisit where we’ve been. We have been looking at some keys for teachers in maintaining good classroom management.

VISITED IN HOLY WRATH – October 20

Some people die of cancer and others of heart attacks. Some are killed in an automobile accident or plane crash. Or it may be a fire or storm, to mention only a few possibilities.

Through them God is speaking to us. Yes, He loves us, and His wrath and anger do not stem from hatred towards those whom He chose in Christ. Them He loves. We ought to keep two truths in mind. In His grace He uses these to bring us out from under the curse and into the new Jerusalem with all His blessings and glory. What is more, in all these miseries and sorrows here below He in love is teaching us. With death and all that leads up to it, He is chastening His people ...

Why Teach? is meant to be an encouragement to our young people to prayerfully consider teacher. Just as Hannah prayed for a child whom she could give to the Lord to be a Godly leader for Isarel, we ask that Godly parents promote as much as possible to calling of being a teacher in our Protestant Reformed schools.
