Today I’m thinking about Sunday School. I’m thinking about the 4th graders I teach and I’m wondering what will they remember about 4th grade Sunday School in 20 years. So, I’m reflecting on my memories.
I remember our classrooms and how there was always really neat stuff. I remember my friends and how we’d always huddle together with hopes that we wouldn’t get split up. I remember the Bible skills we learned and the Bible stories we heard.
But what I remember most was the love that my teachers gave!
All the other things were important, but what I remember most was the love, the relationships, the desire that I succeed. At the end of the day I remember that I fell in love with my teacher…. then, I fell in love with her Jesus.
Relationships is the glue that connected it all together. It’s kind of like an oreo cookie. I enjoy the crunchy chocolate cookies but it’s the white creamy filling that hold the cookies together. It’s that cream that makes it something really special.
Bible stories and Bible skills are important. Teaching life application is very important, too. But what I remember… what holds it all together… is my teacher!
What do you remember from Sunday School?
