Class #5-6

Things are going well. We talked about ministries and relationships. One of the main aspects of both of these is to remember that everyone is different, has different opinions, and different abilities. As long as everything lines up with the Bible, it's not a problem. We need to accept people as they are and help them become what God wants them to be. Just as a sidenote - this does not mean that it is your job to go around correcting people. That comes with position or having been asked for the help. You can't help someone that doesn't want to be helped. Use the Bible as your basis for everything in life. It will never steer yoiu wrong.

For me, a lot of these things have become common sense. I must remember that I have been spoiled by Pastor Allison's preaching and Mrs. Allison's advice. Not that I know everything...who does? The girls seemed pretty interested and had plenty of questions. Some of their questions were easy to answer, some were more challenging. Either way, the class has been a lot of fun and a good reminder for me about some things. I think that that is the best part of teaching. It forces you to remember things that you may have forgotten or help you with things that you need to work on.

I know what you mean about being spoiled. Madison was such a great place for learning things! Every once in awhile I come across something and I'm surprised no one seems to know that. It was drilled into our heads at MBC all the time.
