Jesus saw the crowds, He went up the mountain; and after He sat down, His
disciples came to Him.
Then He began to speak, and taught them, saying: Blessed are the poor in
spirit . . .."
-- Matthew 5:1-3
we owe them so much, yet think about them so little. You are reading
this because someone taught you to read. You access this because someone
taught you haw to use a computer. The value of a teacher is priceless,
and like the amortization of interest, one modest lesson builds upon another
until the sum total of our life is lessons learned times infinity.
Hear the Good News, Jesus' teaches
us that we are to love and care for one another. As we use this as our
baseline for all our coming experiences the world in which we live becomes a
better place to live. Jesus' Sermon on the Mount promises a better life
for those who would live the way Jesus teaches. If
you follow the link above, be captured a taught about being comforted, meek,
fulfilled, merciful and peaceful. It is a lesson for you and I even
today. Let's then build upon it.
Lord, thank You
for the teachers
in my life. There is no way I
can fully know what difference they have made in my life other than who I am
and what I do is by their tutelage. Thank You also for letting me
be a teacher, through my life and with my children. You have taught me
so much about life, I hope I can faithfully pass that on to others. And
thank You for the greatest Teacher of all, Jesus Christ. Thank
You for all You have done in my
life, and all You will continue to do, through Christ our Lord I pray.
