I praise the Lord for His tremendous blessing on the teaching of character in the public schools. What a joy it is to be here and channel God’s love to the children He brings across my path. Usually it is in the classroom but there are also opportunities over lunch, in the library or during tutoring.
Today I was teaching compassion using an object lesson that required cutting little bits of paper in front of the class. In the process, I made a mess on the floor. One of our points on compassion is the importance of looking for needs around you that you can meet instead of just thinking about yourself. I knew my point was getting across when one of the students brought up a broom and dust pan to help me clean up my mess! How encouraging!
At another school a teacher told me how her class had needed to talk through a previous quality a couple times recently and it helped deal with the problems they were having.
Reports like these are exciting demonstrations that God is using this teaching to shape the lives of American citizens one decision at a time.
