A Heart to Teach – The Show Mustn’t Go On (8)

“Develop your teacher persona.” An innocent enough phrase, at least on the surface. “Figure out who you are as a teacher.” Still, no major alarm bells. Then the thoughts get developed: “Think about how you want to portray yourself to your students.” – Warning. – “Be able to put on your teacher costume, wear it ...

A Heart to Teach – Matching Up (7)

First year teaching, groggy and still-waking up, I pulled into the parking lot at school. The early morning sun, having just crested the horizon, glinted on the frost still remaining on my windshield and side-windows. Opening the door of my car, I stood and stretched.

Daily Devotional


If there is one gift to God for which we should praise Him, it is the gift of His Son as our Savior. Quite naturally the Old Testament saints could not do that the way we can. For Christ was not yet born, and His cross had not yet become the altar on which He was sacrificed for our sins. Nevertheless in essence all the saints, from Adam onward and in every nation and people, did and should praise God for that precious, all-important gift. Note once again that in Psalm 117 we are told to praise God for His merciful kindness and for the fact that His truth endureth forever. All of God's merciful kindness is in Christ. And the truth concerning Him and what He did for us will never wear out or become out of date. What mercy it was for God to give up His only begotten Son Whom He loved with all His infinite being. How can we ever brush aside that evidence of God's mercy? How kind He was to place all the punishment which we deserve on His Son! How great then is that merciful kindness! So great it is that it will never run out but "endureth forever." But note that linked with that mercy is His truth. Our versification explains this when it states: All men on earth that live. To God all glory give, Praise ye the Lord; His loving kindness bless, His constant faithfulness And changeless truth confess; Praise ye the Lord. God is faithful, true to His word; and He is this because He is changeless. He is Jehovah, the I AM, Who is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Upon His word we can depend. His merciful kindness once bestowed upon us will never be removed. What ...

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.
