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.

THE HEART OF THE MATTER – January 27

When David in Psalm 51:4 confessed, "Against Thee, Thee only, have I sinned, and done evil in Thy sight," he was not forgetting the sin which he had committed when he killed Uriah, after defiling the man's wife.

We disobey the authorities, entertain thoughts of hatred, covet the neighbor's goods, and forget that in breaking the second table of the law we broke the first table as well. We are inclined to behave as though all we need to do is to say to the neighbor, "Against thee, thee only have I sinned." Such is always the case with the unbeliever, when he pleads guilty in court. He admits only of doing evil to his neighbor. But sin in every form is sin against God; and to God we ought to sing: Against Thee only have I sinned, Done evil in Thy sight; Lord, in Thy judgment Thou art just, And in Thy sentence right. We really do not see our sins unless we see them as hatred against God. Whenever we sin, and regardless of how we sin, we always have another God instead of Jehovah. Regardless of which of the last nine command-ments we break, it is because we are already breaking the first commandment. For our flesh has become our god, and we do its bidding, even though to do so is rebellion against the one true God. We must not overlook or minimize our sins against our neighbor. To do that is to add to our sin. But we must get to the heart of the matter and in sincere humility before God confess that we ...

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.

Although we believe the site has a good foundation, it will soon flounder and go back to being irrelevant if we don’t put up new materials each week. If you encounter a book you can review, a hot topic you’d like to comment or reflect on, an article online that may be of interest to others, we would appreciate your sharing and helping us out. You can contact our Website Director, Mike Vander Veen via email to share your idea or materials or to learn how you can help.
