O Great God of Wisdom,
thank you for our Sunday school teacher.
It can truly be said with the poet, (Oliver Goldsmith)
“…and still the wonder grew,
that one small head could carry all he knew.”
I look forward each week to our class:
to learn and to be with the other members.
We are encouraged to ask questions.
It makes it personal.
In my childhood,
there was a special teacher, too,
who seemed to shine
and embody the lesson.
Thank you, Lord,
for special people
who share your word.
We have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us; prophecy, in proportion to faith; ministry, in ministering; the teacher, in teaching; the exhorter, in exhortation; the giver, in generosity; the leader, in diligence; the compassionate, in cheerfulness.
