These 3 elements are so crucial in teaching Christianly:
FAITH – instilling an assurance in what they believe, building a biblical worldview to apply to life around them. (Hebrews 11:1)
HOPE – imparting a sense of anticipation, a sense of future direction, the knowledge that their life has meaning and purpose. (Jeremiah 29:11)
All of these are great elements … but yet the greatest remains…
LOVE – the greatest pursuit is to love God with full abandonment and to love people as we do ourselves – WOW! (Mt 22:36-40)
God help us do all three, God help us impart so something happens within… a transformation, … an awakening. It takes a choice to believe, a choice to hope… a choice to love. God may we first as teachers pursue love as the Apostle Paul spoke about. 1 Corinthians 14:1 – “Let love be your highest goal…” (NLT)
Amongst all the marking, all the critiquing, let love be our highest goal!
