A Week Of Your Daily Best

The signs were hung in the school office where all the teachers could see them. There were no cute pictures or crazy fonts to catch their attention. They weren't printed in glow-in-the-dark ink or matted on seven layers of coordinating papers.

The words were the important part.

And they were simple words. Give the students your best every single day. Give them the best instruction you can possibly offer. Give them every ounce of your wisdom because that is what's in your heart.

Students deserve the maximum effort a teacher can give every day.

Every day. No exceptions.

And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ. Acts 5:42

If these teachers had been instructed to put all their heart and mind into their efforts at school, how much more so are we to be sharing Jesus Christ in our daily lives? The apostles here in Acts had been imprisoned and beaten, then released with the command to never speak in the name of Christ again. How amazing that just two verses later they were spread all over the city teaching and preaching Jesus every single day.

Make this a week of giving your daily best without excuse. You may not be persecuted as the apostles were and you may not have students hanging on your every word, but it should be your daily decision to live as completely as you can for the name of Jesus Christ. It's the best way to spend these 24 hours you've been given, and it is your reasonable service. Plus, you'll have the joy of knowing that your day's activities will have lasting, eternal results.
