Okay, so now YOU’RE the teacher!
I just returned from a funeral for a dear friend, Alice Schmidt. And there’s something about her life that really stands out and challenges all of us.
Alice was a teacher. By occupation, yes, but also by character. She taught everywhere she went. But perhaps most importantly, she taught by example. If you spent any time with her, you would learn some important things about life, love, faith, and God.
Which got me thinking…what lesson is my life teaching? (long awkward pause…)
What lesson is your life teaching? (now it’s your turn…)
If people were to talk about the lesson they learned from your life, what would that be?
What would you WANT that to be?
What can you do today to make that lesson clear and memorable for the people in your life?
I’d love to hear your thoughts on this in the comment section below.
And I look forward to seeing you this weekend at Seneca Creek.
P.S. The results are in from last week’s poll. The good news is that 36% of those who voted got the right answer. According to Max De Pree, the the leader’s job, between defining reality and saying thank you, is “to serve.” Thanks to everyone who participated!
