The school year has begun. Children and teachers are heading to school for another year of fun and learning. A great scripture always comes to mind at this time of year. Psalm 32:8 reads, I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you. That is a perfect description of a good teacher.
A school bus the other day got me thinking of everything teachers have to put up with that I, as a paralegal, and those in other professions do not.
If you are planning for a year, sow rice; if you are planning for a decade, plant trees; if you are planning for a lifetime, educate people. – Chinese proverb
We need to pray for our teachers. Pray for their peace and patience, but also pray for the parents of the children they are instructing. Pray parents step up and be the type of parent a teacher would want to deal with.
And if you have children in school, don’t forget to thank their teachers. A little bit of encouragement goes a long way.
If you or someone you know is in need of prayer this week, please leave a comment. We’d be more than happy to pray for you. And if this post moved you in some way, please feel free to share it.
