THE ULTIMATE TEACHER
Thursday, February 18
“Lead me by your truth, and teach me, for you are the God of my
salvation.” Psalm 25:5a
I loved being a teacher. While teaching young students can be stressful
and exhausting at times, it is also a time of great joy and fulfillment.
Most days, patience fell out of me like a gentle rain onto my students, but
there were also times when it was sorely lacking. Fortunately, my
students never gave up on me and I continued to respect and care for
them as their primary source of guidance in their learning. If only we
could all cherish our time as lifelong students in God’s classroom,
continually seeking the wisdom, counsel, and truth that is offered. God
has an abundance of patience, so even when we fail, we can forge ahead,
knowing that God’s unending love and forgiveness will lead to the
ultimate gift of grace.
Loving God, in our journey through life, open our hearts and minds to
you as we seek your guidance and truth. Amen.
