Thank God for Teachers

The gifts he gave were…teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ…  -Ephesians 4:12 (NRSV)

Many Christians have fond childhood memories of Sunday School teachers that taught us stories from the Bible, showed us how to apply the concepts to our young lives, and gave us their special time, attention and example to follow.  Parents and family provide the primary molding of our character, but teachers – both secular and within the Church – are often the first adults who teach us how to live in a world outside the family and prepare us to succeed.  How grateful we should be for those who accept the call to be teachers!
