Abinadi Teaches Teachers

So, teaching moment from the scriptures.

Abinadi is preaching and teaching the priests of King Noah and he says something profound.

Mosiah 12:29 "If ye teach the law of Moses why do ye not keep it?"

Now, teachers, for you. "If ye teach why do ye not keep it?"

That puts our personal life in a new light doesn't it? If we are teaching our students to be lifelong learners, to be strong and upstanding individuals... shouldn't we be doing the same? I will never accept the idea that one's personal life and one's teaching are divorced. The children will find out about what your out-of-school life is like, and they'll see you as a model- good or bad.
