A Heart to Teach – Hoping to Avoid Mutiny (6)

We’re going to be taking a slight detour from discussing qualifications of good teachers and the reasonings behind our current teacher shortage to talk, in a short series of posts, about something relevant for both prospective teachers and established teachers alike: classroom management. This time of the year can be particularly challenging for teachers as ...

A Heart to Teach – Pulled (5)

Dipping the sleek paddle edge into the water, I glide the kayak smoothly through the calm waters of the lake. The early morning mist rises from the water in a blanket, covering the surface in a cloud-like embrace. On the nearby shore, fowl warble morning-greetings and welcome the day before casting aloft, circling above me ...

EARS THAT HEAR GOD SPEAK – March 22

The reason, as we saw yesterday, why David in Psalm 40:6 said, "Sacrifice and offering Thou didst not desire: Mine ears hast Thou opened," is that the blotting out of our sins has two requirements. The everlasting punishment our sins call for must be suffered and brought to an end; and the ceaseless obedience He demands of us must be brought to Him in full measure. This no man can begin to do. Only the eternal Son of God can bring an everlasting punishment to an end. He only can bring a full measure of obedience for all of us to the Father. What a gift then it is that God gave as stated in John 3:16, "God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life." How beautiful then are those words of our versification: The offering on the altar burned Gives no delight to Thee; The hearing ear, the willing heart, Thou givest unto me. Then, 0 my God, I come, I come, Thy purpose to fulfill; Thy law is written in my heart; 'Tis joy to do Thy will. Can you say with David, "Mine ears hast Thou opened"? From the day that man fell into sin, God said that He would crush Satan's head and save us from his power. In time He sent His Son to do this through His cross. In Ephesians 2:10, through the apostle Paul, He tells us that we are "His workmanship created in Christ Jesus unto good works," and not because of the good work of believing in His Son. Has He opened your ears so that you have heard this truth and received it into your heart? Have you heard Him say that Christ fulfilled ...

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.

Our new website will only remain relevant with fresh, new material. 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.
