The new school year has started and so have many of the Sunday school classes with new teachers and assistants from the nursery to high school. As we begin the new year, may these words encourage you.
“The law of the LORD is perfect,
reviving the soul;
the testimony of the LORD is sure,
making wise the simple;
the precepts of the LORD are right,
rejoicing the heart;
the commandment of the LORD is pure,
enlightening the eyes.”
Psalm 19:7-8 ESV
As you get ready to nurture and teach your children each week, take time for your own spiritual nourishment. It indeed revives the soul. How?
- Read the lesson Scripture passage.
- Go through the devotional and Bible background found in your teacher’s manual.
- Pray for God to apply his truth to your life.
- Pray for your students by name, asking the Lord to work in their hearts and in their families.
As you submit yourself to the Lord, give special attention to preparing your heart and mind to teach. You will be enlightened and enriched, and you will pass these blessings to your children.
