Personal Blog by Rhonda Crowdis Hardisty

worship-700x273(1)Every week a group of people join together in connection with to write for just 5 minutes on a common topic, straight from the heart, no editing, no pre-writing and re-writing. Today’s topic is worship. So, here goes:

Start: 7:42 AM

Just last week I read in my morning devotional about how parenting should be treated as an act of worship. That got me to thinking about how teaching should also be performed as an act of worship.

So I pledge to teach every day of this school year as an act or worship. To give everything I have to the children with whom I am working in a way that is holy and acceptable to God.

The Bible says this is my reasonable service to Him.

I am not to be conformed to teaching the way others teach: gossiping about my students in the teacher’s lounge, wishing I had different kids in my classroom, praying that June come quickly when it’s not even September.

Rather I should be transformed by renewing my way of thinking and performing His perfect will for my life and for these children: praying over them daily, believing that God will provide for our every need, having faith that they will learn what I am trying to teach them.

I want to be an example to my students and my co-workers of what is that good, acceptable and perfect will of God.

Stop: 7:47 AM I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

  1. teach: gossiping about my students in the teacher’s lounge, wishing I had different kids in my classroom, praying that June come quickly when it’s not even September.

    OMG – do teachers really do that? You mean they are not eternally grateful they get to spend all that time with our (always) wonderful children – ha ha.

    Visiting from FMF the post after you … interesting perspective that you are right, parenting and teaching should be forms of worship …

    • Lol. You’d be surprised. I teach students with Autism and I can honestly say that on the first day of school this week I wondered why I signed up for another year. After making corrections to my schedule everything has been great. It’s all in the perspective. Thanks for visiting!

  2. Yes! Teaching for God is worship. Blessings to you! I know your students and co-workers are blessed.
