The following conversation may or may not have happened in school today .... ;)
KID: (in front of the entire class) I went to church last night. Can I show you what I got?
KID: (reaches into a gym bag) I got this! (shows teacher his "quiet time" book)
TEACHER: Cool! That's an Olympian Club book! My kids have those, too!
KID: I'm having trouble with it. I can't do this.
TEACHER: What can't you do?
KID: It's on this page. (shows the teacher a page that has a crossword puzzle based on James 7)
TEACHER: Well, first you have to look up James 7.
KID: I don't have a Bible.
TEACHER: Follow me. (Kid walks to the teacher's desk. Teacher reaches into his top drawer, pulls out his Bible, and hands it to the kid.)
KID: Thanks! I'll get it back to you when I'm done.
TEACHER: Keep it. I don't need it back. I have another one.
And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. (Galations 6:9)Sometimes an opportunity arises in the most unlikely way, in the most unlikely place, at the (seamingly) most inappropriate time. Still, when a student needed something, God made sure this teacher had the resources at his fingertips to help the student.
God is good!
