I think that possibly I would have liked teaching - but I just base that on my joy in teaching Sunday School. I have taught for many years and all different age groups. Recently I have taken about a year and a half break and have been at a new church so I was recently asked if I could take the preschool-kindergarten class. I jumped at the chance . . . I have missed it. And although it no where near compares to the time and effort that school teachers spend - there is that bit of prep work that is needed throughout the week to prepare.
I remember when I took the high school class for the first time - I was freaked out. What a tough crowd. I prepared myself with an ice breaker game of Bible Scattergories and LOTs of their favorite foods! What a great group they are!
I am thankful for the opportunity to teach these young ones now - but as I get even a little bit older - I realize the tremendous responsibility to be used of God in this manner.
Today the simple message was that Jesus loves us FOREVER. Not for one week - not for one month - or six years or until we mess up - - -His love continues forever!
So I showed up 30 minutes ahead and got things in order - - - we sat down at a table - three little ones and Miss Teri and started with playdough. I felt like the guy in one of my all time favorite commercials that are on TV right now - for A T & T - the ones that say "It's not complicated" - - - enjoy - - - these just crack me up. And so did my new little class.
