Spring of Life -
Being a teacher has so many rewards. Each day we are treated to some of
the most marvelous logic on earth. Each day our minds are stimulated with
new ideas and fresh rational. Please allow me to share with you an example
of such wonder it will make you long to be a teacher. This occurred just
For the past two weeks my wife, a great teacher, has been announcing,
warning, cajoling and emphasizing the unchangeable fact that last Thursday
was the last day of the semester for turning in term papers. This morning
one of her students appeared with her term paper. Now comes the good
part. She told my wife she had to accept the paper because she, the student,
had not been paying attention when the announcements were made each day
for two weeks. This was the best ever excuse.
Can you imagine the people outside Noah's ark calling inside for him to
open the door because they had not been paying attention for the past 120
years? How about when Jesus comes those who are not ready claiming they
could not be lost because they had not been paying attention?
It worked with my wife but did not work with Noah and will definitely not
work at the end. So, Romans 13:11-12, "And do this, understanding the
present time. The hour has come for you to wake up from your slumber,
because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. The night is
nearly over; the day is almost here."
