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. We looked at “avoiding mutiny by boarding the H.M.S. Bounty”. The ‘H’ stood for hope, the ‘M’ for match, and ...

AN ONLY POSSIBLE ANSWER – February 20

In reading and studying Scripture one must always take careful note of the words which God uses in the passage. Scripture is His word, and we miss the message in the measure that we slide over any of the words which He uses. In that important question in Psalm 15:1, "Lord, who shall abide in Thy tabernacle? Who shall dwell in Thy holy hill?" we could easily slide over that word holy. But if we do, we will not understand the answer to that question that is given in the remaining verses of the Psalm. Because God's house is a holy house, we are given the answer that appears in the Psalm. Look at the question and at the beginning of its answer as we sing it from our Psalter: Who, 0 Lord, with Thee abiding, In Thy house shall be Thy guest? Who, his feet to Zion turning, In Thy holy hill shall rest? He that ever walks uprightly, Does the right without a fear, When he speaks, he speaks not lightly, But with truth and love sincere. It is because God is holy, and we by nature are so unholy, that this is the only possible answer to that question the psalmist asked. Only the holy will be guests in God's house. And to be holy is to be like God, completely cut off from sin, and hating sin as completely as He does. Otherwise the door is tightly shut against us. There is no rest for us until there is no sin in us. That blessedness is promised us, but surely not because we are worthy of it. Appreciate the fact then today that God's Son earned it for us, and that He has already begun the work of making us holy by implanting the seed of ...

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.
