Reflections Halfway Through The Bible
In eight months of blogging, we now find ourselves a little over halfway through the entire Bible! Isn't that totally amazing?! This blog may be a lesson in itself, proving that if a person takes a large job and divides it up into many jobs, the load is lightened and the job gets done a bit easier.
We have covered quite a bit of material over these eight months. How are the classes going? Do you feel more confident, knowing that through a diligent study, a prayerful attitude, and with enough preparation time, much can be accomplished? Ecclesiastes 9:10 says, "Whatever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might..." Are we teaching with our whole heart? Do we believe and can we see that our students are growing in Bible knowledge? Ask your students questions, do they know the Bible answers? Are you teaching them well?
These are questions that are important! Our whole aim is to teach the Bible--and the Bible only-- to children. We have the Bible. We have the children. If the Lord is willing, we have the time. All we need is the effort of a compassionate Bible teacher who can see the need to teach God's Word to young minds. Let us do the best that we are able. The students will learn and a loving God will bless us. Proverbs 11:30 encourages all Bible teachers--"...he that winneth souls is wise." Let us strive to be wise.
