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 ...

DEALT WITH AS GOD PROMISED – July 19

There are a few times when we are ready to agree that God has dealt well with us. Most of the time, however, things do not go our way and we complain that He is not treating us well. The basic reason for this complaining is that we do not see things as the psalmist does when in Psalm 119:65, 66 he writes, "Thou hast dealt well with thy servant, O Lord, according to thy word. Teach me good judgment and knowledge; for I have believed Thy com¬mandments. " Did you notice that he says that God deals well with us according to His word? Our versification explains this for us when it states: Thou, Lord, hast dealt well with Thy servant, Thy promise is faithful and just; Instruct me in judgment and knowledge, For in Thy commandments I trust. God's word here is His word of Promise. Always and constantly God is dealing well with us in that he is giving us what He promised in Christ. That which He promised us is a new sinless life with Him in the new creation. And all that He sends us works together to bring us there. Even as the plans of a house call for pieces of wood to be cut at a certain length and nails to be driven here and there, so our glory calls for affliction and pain, death and the grave, through which we go unto heavenly glory. No wonder is it then that the psalmist prays that he may be taught good judgment and knowledge. The more knowl-edge we have of God's promises, the more we will be able to judge that He is dealing well with us and bringing us to what He promised. Look at this present life under the curse, and at ...

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.
