A Care Bearing

“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” ~ Matthew 6:21

Our pastor gently reminded me that my students need to know how much they are cherished by me, their Sunday School teacher when I admitted that I was slacking off sending cards during a recent Sunday School teacher's meeting. I was no longer on the same page with Christ because of my disobedience. I repented at that moment and later spent time reading his love letter to me.

As I thumbed through the books of the Bible, a verse I had memorized some time ago came to my mind, so I turned to the reference in Galations 6:9. After I reread it, the two verses above it leaped out at me. I reap what I sow. I applied God’s wisdom to my situation - if I show I don’t care for my kids and their families, I will have few or no students. Big and little people are attracted to real love like bees to honey, so if I please the Spirit by obeying His nudges, showing by my actions that I care for them like He does, then I will make Sunday School attractive. And perhaps some day, reaping an investment of love, my students will spend eternity with me in heaven if I don’t give up doing good to them.

Prayer: Daddy Lord, I am weary and weak; please refresh me. You said your yoke was easy; please make your burden light too. Keep teaching me Lord about shepherding your lost sheep alongside you. Pull me close into your loving arms and then push me to obey. In Jesus name, Amen!
