I have hardly lived in my new house here in the Phillips neighborhood for two weeks now, yet in the last few days I found out that two of my students live on the same block as I do.
Having students so close to me is a privilege and also a responsibility. Apparently little second graders have lots of time to peer out their windows; they've both mentioned seeing me go out to my car or check my mail. I want to be the teacher that leads these kids to the truth, that tells how they can live to their potential. I guess now that my every move is being watched I need to make sure that I'm setting that example. Is my life speaking Christ? Are my actions showing that I'm not content to fit the mold that society says I was made for?
Pray for me, that I would be bold to speak when the time calls for it, and that my example, even from car door to house, would be a light that shines for all to see.
