Teaching

If you were a teacher, you would be derelict in your duty if you planned to teach something without knowing anything about it. You would never teach someone to fly if you had no idea how to fly. So, what would you do if you were assigned the task of teaching something you didn’t know? If you’re like me, you would panic for a moment and then learn as much as you could as quickly as you could so you could at least do a partially decent job. It is the same in our faith. We are given moments where we are asked to teach and share our faith. We rarely pick those moments ourselves. They are usually thrust upon us. It can come from a friend who asks about our church, a family member challenging our faith, or just having children who rely on us for their physical and spiritual growth. Our reaction should not be one of blundering our way through, but more of a challenge to do what we can to be a better teacher. We can’t give anyone what we don’t have. But, if God has asked us to give, we can bet that He’s getting us ready to receive.
