a teacher, all the time

Gary Bredfelt writes in Great Teacher, Great Leader (My least favorite book of all time) this quote:

As Deuteronomy 6 mandates, you should find yourself teaching the Word in the common experiences of life. In whatever way, in whatever context, we who lead must set our heart to teach the Word of God. Make the ministry of teaching the Word a priority whether you lead in a classroom or in discipling adolescents; whether in the pulpit or counseling session, keep in mind that you need to be a person of the Book. Set your heart to be one who seeks to communicate God’s Word as a central part of your walk with God.

I like the idea of being a teacher in any setting. Let your wiring shine through wherever you are. Be who God made you to be.

ps. Don’t read Bredfelt’s book.

    He who is not against us is for us.
