I found this two days ago on my white board.

I'll confess, I didn't erase it for a day. I didn't know why at first, and I hate to admit it, but I really like it when this happens.

I know, I know. Whichever student who wrote this probably went around to every teacher's board and wrote I ♥ (teacher's name). I know that is probably what happened.

In fact, I know that is what happened because I saw that on a couple of the other boards. But it still makes you feel good.

This is why we are commanded to let all of our words be useful for edification(Eph. 4:29). Our words should build others up, and as much as our culture is one that glorifies sarcasm and insult, the words of the Christians should be reflecting something different.

Whichever student you were that wrote this, and to all of the students that have written this on my board, or on the edge of the homework, or on the top of a sticky-note stack on my desk... Thank You.
