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 ...

A REVEALING THANKFULNESS AND PRAISE – July 17

One way to determine whether an unconscious person hurt in an accident is alive is to find out whether his heart is beating. One way to become aware that one's spiritual heart is beating is to look for what David writes in Psalm 43:4. He had cried out of being cast off and driven from God's house, which was a symbol of His love for His church. And he had prayed for light and truth to assure him that God's love would bring him back. That is why he wrote, "Then will I go unto the altar of God, unto God my exceeding great joy: yea, upon the harp will I praise thee, O God my God." If God would bring him back, he would do this. There are two spiritual activities mentioned here, two deeds that are clearly related to each other and yet distinct from each other. Going to God's altar is bringing to Him a sacrifice of thanksgiving, and declaring how good He is. The other is singing His praises, which includes thanks¬giving but also speaks of His wisdom, power, faithfulness, love, mercy, and grace. Praise includes thanksgiving, but it is much more. And so we sing: At Thy sacred altar bending, God, my God, my boundless joy, Harp and voice, in worship blending. For Thy praise will I employ. For us today, after the veil of the temple was rent in twain, and the whole temple, as a type of God's fellowship with us in Christ, faded away, we still show our spiritual life by singing His praises and bringing an offering of thanksgiving to help the poor and needy and to support the preaching of God's great goodness unto His church. David said that he will thank God and praise Him. So will we when ...

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.
