You have probably heard the quote, "Children don't care how much you know until they know how much you care." Investing in the lives of our pupils goes beyond one hour in the classroom at church.
Are we willing to invest time in the lives of our pupils?
When we attend a sports event or a musical concert, this action says "I care."
When we call a child's parents and ask permission to drop by and visit for a few minutes, this shows we care.
When we mail a letter, make a phone call, or send an e-mail this shows we care.
Praying daily for the pupils in our class, shows we care. One teacher not only prays for the pupils she presently has, but continues to pray for the students she had last year, and the year after that, and the year after that. Time spent praying is never wasted!
