The book of Proverbs. Have you read it lately? If you have, good for you. If not, dive in and pass on what you learn to your students! After all, we should…
The key is to pass it on.After all, Solomon, king of Israel and the wisest man to ever live, passed these Proverbs on to us, so we, as teachers, must do likewise. It’s our duty! It will do both our students and us a service.
Therefore, without further ado, here are five proverbs for us to meditate upon and share with our students this week – one for each day:
Monday – Know wisdom and instruction, to understand words of insight…Proverbs 1:2
Tuesday – Receive instruction in wise dealing, righteousness, justice, and equity…verse 3
Wednesday – To give prudence to the simple, to the young man (student) knowledge and discretion…verse 4
Thursday – A wise man (teacher, student) will hear and increase learning, and a man (teacher, student) will attain wise counsel…verse 5
Friday – The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction.verse 7
Let us set out this week not only teaching the standards of our state’s DOE, but let’s teach God’s standards as well. Together, we can be mindful to rehearse, memorize, know the meaning of each verse, and share the wisdom we’ve gleaned with our students. Squeeze it in that lesson or conversation somewhere teachers!
We have our marching orders for the week. Now, go get the job done fellow teachers! Blessings to you now and always. Stay devoted!
