“Though we are many parts, we are one body in union with Christ, and we are all joined to each other as different parts of one body. So, we are to use our different gifts in accordance with the grace that God has given us. If our gift is to speak God’s message, we should do it according to the faith we have; if it is to serve, we should serve; if it is to teach, we should teach; if it is to encourage others, we should do so.”
Teaching is a vocation, a call from God. Teaching is a ministry, not just a job.
To share in the teaching ministry of Jesus. To teach, not about good, but about values. To teach, not about information, but of Knowledge, and the Source of Knowledge. To teach, not just about truth, but the Source of Truth. So, you are not just a Teacher. You are a formation. You form not just the mind, by the whole person.
You do not only teach the good, but values. You form a human person.
Teaching is a “gift.” It is a gift, entrusted to you. It is not only for you but for the good of the community. You are just a steward. As a steward, your task is to develop your gift, make it grow and multiply, so that you can share it with others.
“Charism” means “gift.” Teaching is a gift to you. You are a gift to the community.
How do you know that teaching is your gift? A gift gives joy. You enjoy doing it. When a gift is shared, you become a gift to others. You give joy to your community.
Jesus spoke to the crowds and to his disciples… You must not be called “Teacher,” because you are all equal and have only one Teacher. And you must not call anyone here on earth “Father,” because you only have one Father in heaven. Nor should you be called “Leader,” because your one and only leader is the Messiah. The greatest among you must be your servant. Whoever makes himself great will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be made great.
Teacher Father /Parent Leader All authority and all knowledge, come from God. We only share in the work of the Lord. We are only humble servants of the Lord.
Everything that we have, everything that we can do, was only given to us by God. We can only give what we received from God.

Kaya’t hinudyatan nila ang kanyangama at itinanong kung ano ang ibig niyangitawag sa sanggol. Humingi siya ngmasusulatan at sumulat ng ganito: “Juanang kanyang pangalan.” At namanghasilang lahat.

A child is like a treasure box just waiting to be opened. The child is like a hidden treasure just waiting to be revealed. The role of the teaching is to help the children discover their “giftedness.”
According to child psychologists, grade school students listen to their school teachers more that their parents. You have a stronger influence to the children. Children can say no to their parents, but they will not say no to their teachers.
