One of the joys of teaching is seeing students grow and develop. I was reminded of this today when a former student gave me a thank you note that recalled lessons from middle school that she remembered as a senior preparing to graduate and attend college. I am thankful for students that grow and mature and we should feel the same joy for each other as we grow and mature in our relationships with God!
We are children of God and therefore have room to grow in our faith and in our commitment to God. Our learning and growth can bring us closer to God. As we grow closer to Him, we can also build relationships with others by sharing the love that He has given us. We can thank God for our own growth and we can celebrate the growth of each other. We can become closer as members of God's family as we love each other and have faith in God!
Support each other as we all learn, grow, and mature in our relationships with God!
Thank You for teaching and guiding me. Help me to continue to grow and to be thankful for growth in myself and others. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
