================================================
=========================

TOPIC: GROWING CLOSER TO GOD us Christians, we find it hard to follow Jesus.


Why? First, Jesus requires us to surrender ourselves to Him, to relinquish our
aspirations for our lives and submit our wills to God. We dont know many things
about God and his ways. Even if we know we dont know how to apply these in
our daily lives. We have many enemies within ourselves and outside us. We
dont know how to overcome them.

But we have answers to these problems - GRACE and WISDOM. Grace is


always freely given by God to all those who seek Him. We need to ask it from
God through prayers. That is why we need to pray daily. To be continued.

Next topic ----------THE HEART OF TEACHING- - - - - - - IS ATEACHER WITH A


HEART!
Life is about what we become, not trophies, grades, medals , wealth,
power etc.
How to become teachers who effect change:
1.

character

We teach who we are. Your consistencies, your credibility is twofaced. Behaving


when no one is around needs to be taken into
consideration. Our personality will
show who we are and what we do
when no one is around. Consistency, integrity,
choices, credit are
words to be pondered upon.
2. Commitment. Teaching beyond techniques; great teachers are great
learners as well; when the going gets tough, the tough gets going.
Failure is a part of success. Life = risk.
What is important in teaching is not knowledge but perspective
(pananaw). How you see the problem. If you are not great today,
where did you fail?
3. Competence. The right person with right motives and right purpose.
They know their priorities, their goals, their commitments.
John Wooden: Be more concerned with your character than with your
reputation. Your character is what you really are while your reputation
is merely what others think you are.
70 yrs. of life span---- 23 yrs.
sleeping = 32.9%; 16 yrs. work = 22.8%;
8 yrs. entertainment = 11.4% ; 6 yrs. eating = 8.6% ; 6 yrs. travel =
8.6% ; 4.5 yrs. leisure(rest) = 6.5% ; 4 yrs. being sick = 6.5% ; 2-4 yrs.
dressing (women) = 2.8% and 0.5 yrs. for God = 0.7%.
Temptations can make us better or bitter, can lead us to heaven or to
hell ----it all depends on us and our choice.
Definition of success----your priorities in life count. Dont focus on the
externals. Life is the coffee not the cup. Live simply. Love generously.
Care deeply. What changes in your life or work, do you need to do to
become a successful and fulfilled teacher?

4. Courage. When a teacher loose heart, this is the realization of


something greater than fear.

5. Contemplation is listening to the TEACHER within; is taking care of our


inner life.
6. Compassion. Teacher with extraordinary kindness in the heart.
7. Connection. Teaching to change lives. Life is not about what you do.
Life is about what you become.
SUMMARY: The heart of a teacher has character, commitment,
competence, courage, contemplation, compassion and connection.
IN A WORLD OF CHAOS, 4 things will happen to a teacher:
1. Lose his/her mind
2. Becomes suicidal (end his/her)
Destroy his/her life
(Live an immoral life)
4. Find God.

3.

In a therapeutic coffee: Dont do it alone. Have support groups. Live


one day at a time.
NOW, the talking stops, the doing continues. May God Bless Your
Efforts! THANK YOU!
