My principal once told me that the parents of my students are entrusting me with their most precious gift every day. All children are different. Each one is unique, presenting different challenges and strengths. The thing that they all have in common is that they represent the very best and most precious gift God has given to their parents.
Children are not only precious to their parents, but are precious to God as well. They are His gift to us. We must remember to treat each child as the unique gift that they are. When you interact with your students' parents this week, remember that you are discussing their most precious gift. Are you showing the student's parent that you cherish their child and consider them a gift? Do you words reflect that the child is a reward from God? Download this week's verse, Psalm 127:3, and remember that your students are indeed little gifts from above!
