There is research that supports teachers building caring relationships with students . When students know that teachers care, the are more likely to be engaged and therefore learn more. The importance of relationships extends beyond the classroom!
We are reminded that we should have positive and caring relationships with each other. The reminder also comes with directions. Our relationships should be built on the mindset that Jesus has shown us! Jesus serves as an example of how to build relationships with others as we serve and lead for God. With a Christ-like mindset, we can have positive relationships with each other!
Follow the example of Christ and build positive relationships with each other!
Thank You for sending Your Son as an example. Help me to learn from and follow His example as I build relationships with others. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
