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.

STANDING IN AWE – November 15

In Psalm 4 David exhorts us to "Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still. Selah" (Ps. 4:4). Our versification sings it thus: Stand in awe and sin not, Bid your heart be still; Through the silent watches Think upon His will. This he wrote because, as verse 1 reveals, he was in distress. And he is speaking to his own soul. This is so very necessary whenever we have troubles. We so quickly and continuously look at what is happening instead of looking to God who has all things completely under His control and causes all things to work together for good to His people. Now what David means here is that we stand in awe before God, that is, that we have profound respect for Him, fear Him in the sense that we are fully conscious of who He is and what He is able to do. If we do that, and we tell our hearts that He is God, we will be silent as far as complaining about what happened to us is concerned. How often is it not that we have to commune with our own hearts and tell them that He is God. We are so ready to question His works, and, as David had just done, we are quick to accuse Him of not listening to our cries. We run to Him and plead with Him that He will hear us, while we fail to listen to Him and what He says to us in His word. Just tell your heart what a mighty God He is who not only created all things, but also gives us such rich promises and revealed such tremendous faithfulness to Noah, Abra-ham, and the Israelites, and in due time ...

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.
