The results of "teaching"


Four years ago, I taught a music program for worship leaders at the Nazarene Seminary. Geovany and Sandy, the couple at the back of the photo, were both single students in the program. The objective was to teach them how to plan and lead worship services, but, you never know, the result was that the two got married! (We did attend their wedding.) Now four years later, they make us a visit to ask me to dedicate their first child, who hasn't arrived yet, and is due in 4 to 6 weeks.
You realize that teaching is not just giving lectures, but living out your life in front of the students. Seems to me they learn more from the latter than from the former. 1 Thessalonians 1:5b-6a "You know how we lived among you for your sake. You became imitators of us and of the Lord"
