Parent teacher conference week can be a long week as normal routines are disrupted in the classroom and at home. Even though the week can seem long, meeting parents can help to better understand my students. There are many times when I wish I could meet more parents than what our conference schedule allows. When we think about our lives, does meeting God, our Heavenly Father, help people know more about us, His children?
God is our Heavenly Father. If we are His children and following Him, then our lives should reflect His influence. Just as meeting my students' parents allow for a connection that helps me better understand my students, our actions and behaviors should reflect our belief in God. Our lives should show the love, compassion, and forgiveness that we have learned from God. As our words and actions help people learn more about God, those that we meet should not be surprised that God is our Heavenly Father!
Be sure your words and actions reflect the glory of your Heavenly Father!
Thank You for Your love and compassion in my life. Help my words and actions to be a reflection of Your presence and influence in my life. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
