God’s Word is living and active. It gives us encouragement, hope and lessons for daily instruction. I listen to Alistair Begg often and he demonstrates that by preaching whole books of the Bible he can hit on every one of life’s issues. It’s amazing. Today let’s be intentional with our face.
A verse to ponder
Numbers 6:24-26 – The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn His face toward you and give you peace.
An intentional joy for the classroom
Just as God shines His face upon us today it will be our turn. Use your smile today on purpose. Be conscious of your facial expressions and intentionally send smiles today. You will be amazed at the power of shining our face upon someone else. At the same time, notice the smiles of others and comment on their smile. “Nice smile.” “You’re always smiling.” Your smile made my day.”
A focus of reflection
Have you thought about how gracious God has been to us as educators? He gives us creative ideas, strength to be patient when we are not, the desire to learn and this high calling. Thank God today that He made you an educator and how much He shines His face upon us.
(I was unable to see any students on President's Day, but it's never too late to encourage them to be anyone they want to be! ")
