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 ...

DELIGHTING IN GOD’S COMMANDMENTS – June 19

It is one thing to keep a law. It is quite a different thing to do with joy what that law demands. In fact, then it does not even seem like a law. And the question is whether we keep God's law because we must, or because we find delight in doing so. Then, too, it is one thing to demand something of someone else and quite another thing to find pleasure in doing so yourself. If then we find joy in doing what God's law sets forth, all the ridicule and derision the world heaps upon us will not stop us from doing what pleases God. That was the case with the psalmist, and he expresses that in Psalm 119:47, 48 in these words, "And I will delight myself in thy commandments, which I have loved. My hands also will I lift up unto thy commandments, which I have loved; and I will meditate in thy statutes. " This we can do when we love God. Then we will also love His law. We will do what it demands because in love to God we want to please and serve Him. And note that the psalmist says twice that he loves God's law, which is impossible, if we do not love God. Not only must we not be ashamed of doing that which brings us ridicule; but we must want to continue walking in God's law because we delight in His commandments. In fact, if we love God, and therefore love His law, we will meditate in it to see how we can be more pleasing in His sight than we are at the moment. We will lift our hands, that is, stretch them out unto His commandments, even as we sing: The Lord's commands which I have loved ...

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.
