In honor of so many who are heading into a new school year this month, I wanted to share a post I wrote around the same time in 2020.
One of the greatest joys I have as a teacher is the start of each new year when I get my class lists and get to pray for all of my students by name before they even come through the doors of my art room. Even though this is not something I ever share with them, I have found that it makes a big difference in the rapport in my classroom. Teaching in a public school, I learned early on that you don’t have to say anything to show others the love of Christ. They will get to know Him just by inviting the Lord into your day.
I think it is an important lesson to remember as we live in a secular world that we show everyone we encounter we are Christians by our love.
