It is a teachers day! Here in the Philippines, we celebrate teachers day every 5th of October which is also the worlds teachers day. This is the best time to thank teachers with simple thoughtfulness. I bought three bars of chocolate for my son’s present for his teachers! Though I and his brother have eaten one of them :-). What is this present for? It’s not to bribe them or give my son a high grade but to let them know how thankful I am each time my son went home and learned something. It makes our study time easier and helped me do the things I needed to do without worrying because I know he learns in the school. When I handed the gift to my son, I told him to say “thank you teacher” this is my way of teaching them to pay gratitude to their teachers.
When I became a mother and started teaching my kids ABC, write and read, I realized it’s not easy to become a teacher. It takes time, patience and love. It’s not easy to teach a child! Oh, I teach with discipline stick on the side and my mouth wide open because most of the time they wander around. But, when they are in school you see how they behave and listen to their teacher. A teacher must have a magic?! Yes, I believe so, becoming a teacher is more than a profession but a selfless service and they are blessed with a special gift and that gift is to teach with all their heart no matter how foolish our brain. I believe the Lord bless them with wisdom and strength to teach.
Here are my best three bible verse that talks about how God blessed the teachers!
Not many of you should become teachers, my brothers, for you know that we who teach will be judged with greater strictness. For we all stumble in many ways. And if anyone does not stumble in what he says, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle his whole body. – James 3: 1-2
I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you. – Psalm 32:2
And God has appointed in the church first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healing, helping, administrating, and various kinds of tongues. – Corinthians 12: 28
