The Bible says, “Give everyone what you owe him: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.”(Romans 13:7) As I read this passage, I was reminded of the impact teachers have on the lives of our children.
Sure, some of them teach for the money, even though you are not going to get rich teaching, but most teachers teach because they have a passion for seeing kids learn and grow.
My mother taught for over 30 years with tenderness and passion. My wife was a teacher and is now in what we refer to as “semi-retirement” as we raise our school-age children. But, the truth is, teachers deserve our respect and honor.
So, find a way today and throughout this school year to honor the teachers placed in your child’s life; they deserve it.
Have a Blessed Day!
