Do you have the motivation to finish this year well?
OK, I am going to be transparent here. In spite of just last week’s celebration of Resurrection Day, this time of year I am dragging. These last few months of the school year always seem interminable to me; I tend to be focused on all there is to do, instead of all that has been accomplished. I become frustrated with myself and my student(s) for not following my plans to the letter.
Did you happen to notice all of the “I’s” and “my’s” in these sentences? That is part of the problem. Too much focus on ME. MY plans.
From the phone calls and notes I get this time of year, I know this discouragement is not only a problem for me. As I have been looking for words of encouragement for you, I came across this video. If you watch it, you will be inspired.
Let’s remember all that we have and not focus so much on the way we want things to be. Let’s put our noses to the grindstone and be faithful in the small things, day by day, so that we may finish this school year well.
He who is faithful in a very little thing is faithful also in much; and he who is unrighteous in a very little thing is unrighteous also in much. Luke 16:10
His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful slave. You were faithful with a few things, I will put you in charge of many things; enter into the joy of your master.’ Matthew 25:23
May we all be faithful,
