Master Teacher

1/1998

“A man, to be an effective teacher, must be a living transcript of the truth he insists on; if he is not, he is urging others to adopt what he has not adopted himself. And he weakens its force, in that while he asserts it will produce distinct effects on those who receive it, he cannot show perhaps a trace of them on himself. The effective teaching is when one can say, like Gideon, ‘As I do, so shall ye do.’” It is encouraging and comforting to know that Jesus is taking great pains to not only give us divine words, but divine lives as well.
