Why, in education, are we so reluctant to tell a short person that the letter “A” has three different sounds? Why are we afraid to read a Bible story to God’s children because it might be too long or too difficult to understand? Why do we keep so much information from them until we deem it the age appropriate time? Shouldn’t we just give them the information that we know they will need to succeed and allow them the opportunity to store it or allow us the opportunity to teach it again? Little children love to learn, let’s stop keeping them from it.

Theodore Roosevelt said,

It is not the critic that counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly, who errs, and comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds.

So could I also add or infer that the credit belongs to the teacher who is actually in the classroom, whose hands are marred by Expo marker and blouse messed by drying dirty tears and feet aching because sitting isn’t an option if you want children to actually learn; who strives valiantly to teach “how to solve for X,” and comes short again and again in turning in Teacher Notes on time, because there is no effort without lots of error and numerous shortcomings in their own character; but the credit belongs to the teacher that rises early every morning and thinks about his students on the way to school and who most certainly strives endlessly to make this arrow better?

Do you think T.R. would mind taking some liberties in his well stated exhortation?

Like arrows in the hand of a warrior,
So are the children of one’s youth.
Psalms 127:4

Here is my job description, simply stated.   Living in a small town of East Texas, driving used vehicles, teaching in an old day-care building, rubbing shoulders daily with people who bet that “ain’t ” is in the dictionary, this seems to be a high calling for someone like me.   God is in the business of issuing high callings, or tall orders to seemingly small and insignificant people.   Just thinking of Mary’s birth story or David’s size when taking on Goliath or Abraham’s trek in the wilderness and one realizes God expects great things out of his rather small people.   Here we are in a rural Southern town and God has asked or rather required me to prepare His arrows, sharpen their points and ensure that they will fly straight when released into flight.   This is God’s story and I’m simply a small character trying my best to play my part to the glory of God.   Some days will be foggy, a few will be rainy, but most days will be sunny with a sure chance of God’s goodness.
