Devotional of the Month

Applying Knowledge to Life’s “Classroom”

“Apply your heart to instruction and your ears to words of knowledge” (Proverbs 23:12, NIV).

As a teacher on the Navajo Reservation with students whose mother tongue was not English, I decided to pursue a master’s degree in Teaching English as a Second Language (TESL). I felt an advanced degree in this discipline was necessary for my job—a trainer of teachers in second language learning. To be effective in my assignment, an advanced degree was essential. I needed as much knowledge and training as possible

     I devoted several summers to achieve my goal at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff. The mountain setting attracted me for its beauty, cool summers, and proximity to home.

     After taking several courses in English grammar and various phases of linguistics, I signed up for a methodology class. By this time, I had had several years of on-the-job experience, and this particular class helped me combine my experience with the other courses. The class sessions were useful; the professor, thorough; discussions, intriguing; assignments, valuable.

     At the end of the five-week session, the prof told us to bring a “blue book” to class for the final exam. Arriving in class, he gave us one question—yes, only one: “What are you going to do on Monday morning?” In other words, now that you have the knowledge acquired in this class, how will you apply this information in your classroom. A surprise exam? Definitely. A fair test? Absolutely!

     I wrote and wrote and wrote. My fingers became numb. Filling every page of that blue book, I turned it in to the prof at the last minute.

     Later, when the professor returned the blue book to me, he had written A+ on the first page with a generous comment about my responses. (Please forgive the boasting.) While shocked at the grade—the first ever A+ for an essay exam in all my education—I felt gratified at being able to demonstrate—well, at least to that prof—that I could apply knowledge to a classroom setting.

     In our journeys with the Lord, He is watching to see if we can apply what He is teaching us to our daily walk—in the “classroom” of life. If we are serious about our relationship with God, we know we must grow—growth that comes through disciplined study of His Word and internalizing it. And I believe our loving Father is eager to stamp A+ on our hearts, giving His generous affirmation of our purposed intent to be His disciple.

Father, forgive me for the times I so carelessly treated Your Holy Word. Help me to study it daily and apply this knowledge—Your truth, Your teachings—to my heart and life.

Going the Distance!
Dr. Mark Taylor, Christian School and College/University Representative

Years ago, I read the book Finishing Strong – Going the Distance for Your Family by Steve Farrar. As I read this book, I was challenged to reflect on finishing the race as mentioned in Acts 20:24 (NIV): “…My only aim is to finish the race and complete the task Jesus has given me...” Read more

Tackling the Tests
Becky Ramsey, Public School and Christian School Representative

Before the time for state testing arrives, each child goes through much preparation to show what he or she has learned. Teachers know that students must be motivated to take the test in such a way that they prove their knowledge! Read more

The Farmer and the Seeds
Nancy Shonamon, Christian School Representative

As educators, we receive the batch of seeds assigned to us each year. We have little to no choice of what seeds we receive. In the batch will be some watermelons, carrots, corn, potatoes, and an onion or two. Read more

Finishing Strong
Becky Ramsey, Public School and Christian School Representative

When students and teachers come to the fourth quarter of the school year, too often the focus is the end of school or even what is going to happen after the last bell has rung. Many discussions around the lunch tables or in the faculty lounge are about summer plans rather than on school work or the final semester strategy. Read more
