This is a lesson for me. Last Sunday AM, I was not prepared to teach my Bible class. I could go on and on about the reasons (excuses) but the reasons aren’t really important. What is important is to be reminded (and believe me, I was reminded) how important it is to be prepared when teaching a Bible class.
As I mentioned in my previous post, I’m now teaching the baby class. I teach the same subject for 1 month. Since last was the first Sunday in August, it was time to change lessons. I had all the materials I needed because they have been stored in boxes from times that this lesson was previously taught. What I hadn’t done was re-familiarized myself with the material. I hadn’t become comfortable enough with it to go in and teach with the enthusiasm and confidence I needed.
Tonight, I get another chance. Am I prepared — yes! At least much better prepared than I was Sunday. So, bring on the sweet little kids and lets have a good class.
