Into His Harvest
He told them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few.
Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into His harvest field.”
Luke 10:2
Are You Ready to Learn?
It was one of the most terrifying
moments in my life – yet one that had to
come eventually and one that, at least on
paper, I was prepared for. It was the first
time that I was to be in an airplane as an
instructor. When you are by yourself, you
are at least in control of your own destiny.
When you are a student with an instructor
on board you have a sense that, even in the
worst of situations, your instructor will bail
you out. But, when you ARE the instructor, your life hangs not just in your own
hands, but in the hands of someone who
knows far less about airplanes than you do.
And when you only have 280 hours in an
airplane, you know precious little about
flying airplanes. Thanks to the FAA, however, you can be qualified to be a flight
instructor. There I sat as living proof.
An old adage is that no one in the
class learns as much as the teacher. Since
that first flight lesson I have come to believe that saying more than you will know.
Not only must the teacher prepare for
what he or she wants to present, but the
teacher with integrity will
also prepare for the unexpected – sort of like antici-
Paul Smith
pating every attempt your flight student
will make to inadvertently kill you. A good
teacher must then teach with one eye from
the perspective of the lectern (knowing
what must be taught), but also from the
classroom (knowing what questions will
arise and what issues will develop). Considering yourself a teacher is scary stuff. It is
not without reason that many people hold
James 3:1 as their favorite verse in the Bible, “Let not many of you become teachers, brethren, for you know that we who
teach shall be judged with greater strictness.”
of Hebrews makes is this: at some point it
is time to grow up, give up being treated
like a grammar school child and become a
mature adult. One way to do that is to become a teacher.
Volunteering to be a teacher
might be scary stuff – but you know what?
You can do it! At the very least you can
volunteer to be an assistant, just to sit with
a teacher and be a helper. Become an apprentice. Learn by doing. And, look at it
this way – no student ever killed his or her
Bible teacher by putting the kitchen table
into an unrecoverable spin.
I know with our recent lessons on
entering into God’s harvest that many of
you are saying, “Whew, thank goodness for
James 3:1! I can’t be a teacher because I do
not know enough!” While I do not wish to
contradict Bro. James, another passage of
Scripture might also be applicable here as
well, “For though by this time you ought
to be teachers, you need some one to teach
you again the first principles of God’s
word. You need milk, not solid food; for
everyone who lives on milk is unskilled in
the word of righteousness, for he is a
child.” (Heb. 5:12-13) The point the author
I never would have volunteered
myself to be a flight instructor with 280
hours of flight time. But I had the instruction. My instructors and flight examiners
all said I was ready. We had students lining
up for their first lessons. I was needed. I
wasn’t perfect, and sometimes it was flatout ugly, and boy did I learn a lot about
flying when I started teaching!
Are you ready to
start learning?
