multiple friends and non-FCS teachers ask me, “What are you going to do for Fall Break?” Saying that our Faith teachers would be attending a Professional Development event while the students were off of school was met with some sympathetic expressions. However, the pity was unnecessary. While it would have been nice to have 2 whole days off to do whatever I wanted to do, what I experienced was a refreshing and inspiring time of remembering why I am a teacher and the influence I have on the students I come in contact with.
It’s not like we wake up each day and say, “You know what. I think I am going to be a 2 today.” Sometimes we just get lazy or overwhelmed or stressed or just plain tired of doing the right thing–especially in a world that tries to blur the lines between right and wrong. However, Galatians 6:9 reminds us, “ Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.”
I hope you are challenged as I was to never tire of doing good. No matter where you are or who is watching, be the 3 you were meant to be!
