A Heart to Teach – Supply-and-Demand (2)

January, 2012. A few years into college and a few years to go. Each week I would look in the church bulletin, read it over. One thing that would draw my particular interest during those first few months of the year would be “teacher-needed” notices. The problem...there simply weren’t many. Anxiously, I would close the ...

A Heart to Teach – Be Still and Know (1)

To anyone who has been paying any attention to the latest school “news cycle”, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that there aren’t enough teachers. However, unlike the news that often crosses through the news stations of the world, this isn’t going to disappear as quickly as it arrived. It’s not a flash-in-the-pan, “boy-calling-wolf” situation ...

LIVING IN LOVE TO THE NEIGHBOR – February 22

If one speaks the truth in one's heart, one will walk up-rightly and work righteousness. This one will then be living in love toward the neighbor. For love toward God al-ways produces love toward the neighbor. And if we live in hatred of the neighbor, it is because we are acting in hatred of God. So serious is the matter. One cannot face toward the north and toward the south at the same time. One cannot open one's mouth and keep it shut that very same moment. And because God demands that we love the neighbor, it is an act of hatred against God to hate the neighbor. For that reason David, in Psalm 15:3, in answer to the question as to who will dwell with God in heavenly glory states, "He that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbor, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbor." And one of our versifications declares: He that slandereth not his brother, Does no evil to a friend ; To reproaches of another He refuses to attend. Wicked men win not his favor, But the good who fear the Lord; From his vow he will not waver, Though it bring him sad reward. Plainly what we do today here below reveals whether we will dwell above and taste God's love, when we are called out of this life. No, we will not earn a place in God's house by our works here below. We can earn nothing from Him upon whom we depend for everything. But to those whom God has chosen to live with Him in covenant fellowship, He gives that new principle of life that causes them to love Him. And in that love we will watch our tongues and fight against slander, backbiting, gossip, and ...

 

News and Announcements

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.
