The Take On is More Important than the Take Off!

Summer break is nearly over.  I can’t believe it, can you?  In a couple of days, the kiddos will be returning, another school year will be taking off, and we will be taking on the high calling of teaching yet again. As much as I enjoy summer break, teaching gives me purpose, and a life without purpose is no life at all. Amen?!
Teachers, the take on is extremely important!  Therefore, before the take off, I’m reposting Awaken! Arise! Fight the Good Fight of Faith!  Are you awake?  Have you arisen? Are you fighting the good fight of faith?  If not, or if you need a reminder of what it’s all about, then this video blog will give you the swift kick in the rump you’ll need to take off for sure! 🙂
One more item of business before the school year takes off is to remember the boycott of Wal-mart. Please participate and pass the word on to your fellow teachers.  Click Christian Teachers Boycott Wal-mart to learn all about it if you haven’t heard already.
My challenge for you this school year is to Awaken! Arise! & Fight the Good Fight of Faith.  This month, not only will we take off on another adventurous school year, but Devotions for Teachers takes off on its 3rd year of encouraging teachers in the classroom.  I can’t wait!!

  1. thank you for doing this blog! It sounds like you’re from the South or maybe Texas. In any case, I’ve been teaching in a Chrisitian school in Santa Monica for the last five years. But before that, I founded a Christian school in Guatemala. I don’t know if you speak Spanish but here’s the website http://colegiocristianoguatemala.com I definitely agree that working to get kids saved is the best thing a person could do with his/her life. Thanks for your like on my chocolate cake.
