serving the younger
I teach a 9th and 10th grade Bible class. We are currently studying the book of Proverbs, but I try to throw other thoughts and ideas into the class. One common theme that I hit on from time to time is the idea of service. I believe that serving others is so important, but it often gets over looked or misunderstood.
To help my guys I like to give them opportunities to serve. Usually it is some mundane little task that involves cleaning, but yesterday I set them to work teaching. They each had a different grade that they were going to "substitute" as the Bible teacher for that grade.
They loved it. The elementary teachers loved it. I loved it. It was great! Unintentionally it was on a day when there was a tour going around the school... They loved it too.
Here are some pictures that I snapped with my camera phone. I didn't want to disturb them, so they are mostly through windows and around corners, but it was heart-warming to watch.
