I have been in the teaching profession for over 20 years. It is the finest of careers. There is nothing more valuable to a society than teaching and preparing young people for adulthood. Our country is tough on its educators. We should be. We can't afford to turn this world over to an ill prepared population. The essence of life is in education. People are passionate about how kids are educated, they all realize the value.
Education goes way beyond the bricks and mortar of our schools. We teach our kids how to live life to its fullest. We teach kids compassion, dedication, love, honor, joy, sadness, and so much more. Yes, we christians are all responsible for the growth of young lives, young men and women who have dedicated their lives to the kingdom. If these people don't know the real power of the holy word, if they don't know the power of prayer, if they don't know the joy of bringing others to know the Lord, no one will see the kingdom come. We need to dedicate ourselves to TEACHING young christians and educating the secular world about the love of Christ. Teaching should be our greatest profession. We will be criticized, we will be ridiculed, and we will be held to a higher standard. We should be. We are all responsible for teaching the word of God, enduring the criticisms, and living up to the highest of standards.
Thank you lord for the opportunity to teach young people. I also thank you for the opportunity to teach about your wonderful love for me. Thank you for this wonderful life you have granted me. Give me the wisdom to serve you every single day. I am humbled by your love and the blessings in my life. Amen!
