Teaching Higher Things - Educator Appreciation Day (Mark 1:21-28)Pastor Joe Sanders, May 4, 2014
Part of the Standalone series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Teaching is a noble undertaking and is especially prized in the Bible and throughout Biblical history. Those who teach are held to a higher level of accountability by God and have a massive list of responsibilities on their plate as they serve to shape and mold impressionable minds and hearts. In the Church, we are all teachers and we must remember that more than any lesson or information that we could pass on, we ourselves are the lesson. We are passing on values and seeking to equip people to be the most effective image of Christ that they could possibly be. Christ was the Master Teacher and the best example of holistic character and spiritual teacher that could ever be imitated. So let’s look our Master and be teachers who pass on much more than math, english, or thinking skills- let’s impart wisdom, character, and tools to deal with life in a Godly manner, no matter where our students are or what they do.
