And Who Can Teach?

Teaching about a subject doesn't mean you know all about the subject...but that you know in part and are researching it in order to bring to light more of the truth about a subject. Teaching is a most humbling gift since one can only teach what one has been taught. And every teacher knows, or should know,  that unless One Greater reveals, there is nothing to teach...

Who knows a thing unless she searches it out? And what is the source of truth to teach?

So then, the one who teaches is simply reflecting the Teacher regarding the thing that has been taught. The learning, the seeking out of the truth becomes a song sung by the one taught...

"...what do you have that you did not receive?..." 1 Corinthians 4:7

So sing the song you have been given and bring to light the knowledge of the One who created YOU for His glory in HiStory...

Ponder this for your Saturday...joining Sandy for STILL SATURDAY where we are slow and still for the weekend...

Oh, I love this ... A bird sings because it has a song. Amen!

I so appreciate what you're sharing here about teaching, especially as I'm about to share a book on the craft of writing! As a teacher, I must always remember that what I share, in the classroom or otherwise, I've learned it from somewhere. I can never "lay claim" to "certain knowledge" on my own.

Your words here are so beautiful and so timely! Thank you, my friend.

YES!! We live in a constant learning process of life so we can teach from moment-to-moment. Can't take anything for granted very often; there's always MORE to learn, especially as it pertains to the changing of hearts, souls, and spirits around the world.

Good reminder; nice photos.
