Thought for the Day: Can I get an Amen? Not trying to be funny, but especially in this moment, there are plenty of us who should not be public school teachers. We would have failed the first week into this whole new world of teaching last March. I know James was talking specifically about those who were teaching the faith, but teachers in general have an immense responsibility. When I read how teachers will be “judged with greater strictness,” I am quickly reminded that God’s judgement is not the same as human judgment. Divine judgement is holy light, revealing the truth – not for the purpose of belittling or mocking or marginalizing. Divine judgement is always done with grace, providing an opportunity for one to see where there is weakness, concern or the chance for improvement. Right now, I think divine judgement for teachers is in the form of a disco ball, as God is shining a party light on all the amazing teachers and staff who are serving well beyond their calling and contract.
Prayer: May your light shine brightly upon all the good and creative work provided by educators, from preschool to college and everything in between. Holy God, Source of strength and encouragement, let the warmth of your light remind all those who serve to educate others know of your everlasting presence. Amen.
