As his master

Thedisciple is not above his master: but every one that is perfect shall be as his master. Luke 6:40

Because every teacher we listen to attentively does more than just talk, let us be careful what kind of teachers we choose for us or for our children! If a blind will lead a blind, they will both end up in a ditch. Luke 6:39

The fact that we can achieve our teacher’s level can be encouraging and inspirational, especially if Jesus is the one whom we follow and learn from. On the other hand, if someone else is our role model and our teacher, we can end up in great trouble. The Bible encourages us to learn from faithful people who have gone before us such as: prophets, apostles, and other believers who finished their race well. That is why I personally believe in the benefit of reading biographies of godly people of the past.

There is much we can learn from others, but let us be careful lest we become followers of men; especially when someone arises who is talented, articulate, charismatic- such people have a potential to draw crowds after themselves.

In the present time I see that the devil strategically tries to take control over the education of this country. I guess he knows the principle Jesus mentioned in Luke 6, and does all he can to spread his doctrines, philosophies and worldviews through the schooling system. The devil invisibly tutors people from kindergarten to universities to make those students exactly like he is. A lot of woes with our youth can be traced back to the ones who taught them.

I pray that God would rise up an army of godly young people who would take the challenge and responsibility for the next generation and would teach their children the ways of the Lord, not relying on public school education that is offered for free by the enemy of our soul!
