A Heart to Teach – The Show Mustn’t Go On (8)

“Develop your teacher persona.” An innocent enough phrase, at least on the surface. “Figure out who you are as a teacher.” Still, no major alarm bells. Then the thoughts get developed: “Think about how you want to portray yourself to your students.” – Warning. – “Be able to put on your teacher costume, wear it ...

A Heart to Teach – Matching Up (7)

First year teaching, groggy and still-waking up, I pulled into the parking lot at school. The early morning sun, having just crested the horizon, glinted on the frost still remaining on my windshield and side-windows. Opening the door of my car, I stood and stretched.

SEEKING GOD WHOLEHEARTEDLY – April 18

To find a particular object one must go in a definite direction and upon a particular way. Go north when the object is south of the place where you are, and you will not reach that object. And the same is true about things spiritual. Therefore the psalmist in Psalm 119:10 writes, "With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander from thy commandments."

And instead of finding Him in His love and mercy, we will have Him find us in His holy wrath. For that law is a very, very narrow path. Therefore it is essential that we seek God with our whole heart, that is, constantly, by walking in His commandments which call us to love God. Listen to the versification of the psalmist's words: Sincerely I have sought Thee, Lord, O let me not from Thee depart; To know Thy will and keep from sin Thy word I cherish in my heart. In order to keep on the path that leads to God's fellow-ship, and the assurance of His love, our hearts must ...

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.
