I AM A TEACHER
And the things which you have heard among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also. 2 Timothy 2:2 NKJV
Life is short and full of surprises. We can easily say, “Here today gone tomorrow”. But what the questions is what did we do with our time here? Recently my wife and I were involved in an automobile accident. Our local Awana Club of 3rd-5th graders prepared for each of us a get-well poster. This large piece of pink or yellow cardboard was filled with greetings and pictures encouraging us. Those in the hospital or the Care Center or who came into our room remarked about the poster so we often had opportunity to share about our church, Awana club, and our Savior.
In one way or another we are all teachers. We teach our children, our work colleagues, our spouses etc. During our recovery we had time to reflect on the many opportunities God had given us to teach. Pauline facilitated Ladies Bible Studies at our church for many years. I taught Adult Sunday school and gave Awana lessons for decades.
Similarly Paul recognized Timothy’s ability to teach in 2 Timothy 2:2.
God gave us opportunities to teach.
Special talent He gave to each.
Privileged to share God’s grace and truth.
His Wonderful Words to peers and youth.
To teach is to transform the world.
