Good morning.

When I, Mike, was in primary school I had a wonderful, wise Afrkaans language teacher who turned everyday situations into learning opportunities.

He would overhear our schoolboy chatter about our soapbox cars we raced down the street the day before and use it as an opportunity to teach us Afrikaans syntax.

That's just what Jesus did. When He wanted to get the disciples to understand reaching the lost, He pointed to the fields and said to them, "Don’t you have a saying, ‘It’s still four months until harvest’? I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest. Even now the one who reaps draws a wage and harvests a crop for eternal life, so that the sower and the reaper may be glad together.

(John 4:35‭-‬36)

Paul reminds us that " Christ himself gave ... teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up" (Ephesians 4:11‭-‬12)

Those with the gift of teaching have the ability to educate God's people by clearly explaining and applying the Bible in a way that causes them to learn.

Jesus had the ability to use everyday situations and use them to teach His followers. He did this with the 12 as well as with crowds of over 5000.

Be encouraged to keep your eyes and ears open to the teaching possibilities of everyday situations.


Mike and Daphne

Good morning. David writing in Psalm 43:5 asks, "Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me?" He then gives us good advice, "Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior
