We are all blessed to learn from the
greatest teacher of all time:
Jesus Christ. Over the better
part of the past 2,000 years,
I don't suppose there has passed a
single second when somewhere in the world His teachings were not
treasured, studied, pondered, repeated, and modeled. And is that not the
goal of all teachers? To make a lasting difference for good? To
bless the lives of others in a way that extends far beyond
a lesson or classroom?
If we learn from Him, we will improve
not only as teachers, regardless of our situation in life,
but we will also greatly improve
as human beings.
So it is my privilege and honor to speak
to you today about the Savior,
because the best way to become
a better teacher is to become
a better follower of Jesus Christ.
Teaching in the Savior’s Way will help all who are teaching.
It can provide inspiration and instruction for parents, neighbors,
ministering brothers and sisters, missionaries, and all disciples
of Jesus Christ.
Discipleship means loving, caring
for, blessing, and lifting others,
and that means teaching. In other words,
if you are trying to love and serve as
Jesus did, then you are a teacher.
And teaching in this Savior's
way is for you and me.
