Peace


Comfort and be comforted. Read: Proverbs 16:7-9 In a world of political and social chaos and change, educators have a unique vantage point from the classroom that offers abundant opportunities to engage with students and communities in meaningful ways and to lead in ways that help guide change to elicit positive outcomes. In what positive ways do you influence those in your school community? Actions and words as simple as a smile and classroom welcome at the door before the start of the next class session can impact the emotions of a student or colleague. Sending a thank you card, making a positive parent phone call home about a student, attending or speaking at a school board meeting, supporting school fundraisers or charity events, or even assisting a colleague with a lesson plan or technology idea can go a long way in supporting the culture of your school community. Despite adversity or stressors that we may face, as educators, we can take actions - great or small - that effect positive outcomes for ourselves and those around us. After all, "better is a little with righteousness than great revenues without right." During times of change or periods of heightened stress, if we continue to work in ways pleasing to the Lord, he will bring peace. Amidst the everchanging political tides that affect education policy and our daily lives as educators, we certainly need this peace now as ever. PRAYER: Thank you, Lord, for comforting us with your peace during times of uncertainty and change. Please guide us as we affect our communities with our positive influence and care as a reflection of your positive influence and care for us. We serve you and ask for these blessings in Christ's name. Amen. --Devoted Educator
