A disciple is not above his teacher, but everyone when he is fully trained will be like his teacher. - Luke 6:40
Who is the best teacher you had in school?
I am guessing that you could list a couple and they are in different circumstances of your life. I had a really good elementary teacher, Mrs. Miller in third grade. I also remember Mr. Nelson in High School because he told stories in history class that were funny. Lastly, how can I forget Mr. McHorney in college, He liked to watch conspiracy videos of George Bush, Bill Clinton and really any he could get his hands on and just laugh.
We remember what they taught us in that moment and it was their ability to convey knowledge that made them our favorite teacher. However, years later it is their character and who they were that really stands out. I can’t remember a single story from Mr. Nelson, but I remember his passion. I don’t know what Ms. Miller taught me, but I know she was kind to me when I was the new kid at school. Mr. McHorney almost cared more about helping out with Habitat for Humanity then he did teaching and that is memorable.
Who are you plugging into? I know the easy answer is, your kids. However, that is not your ministry, that is your job. Parenting your kids to show them Christ is what we are supposed to do (see Deuteronomy 6). What is your ministry? Where are you teaching someone to follow Christ, more importantly where are you showing your character that will stay with them?
