A teacher’s paraphrase of 1 Corinthian 13

  1. 1. A teacher’s paraphrase of 1 Corinthians 13<br />
  2. 2.  If I could find all the answers to educational problems<br />and did not have love, my efforts would be futile.<br />
  3. 3. If I could buy every kind of educational aid, <br />and have sacrificed to do so,<br /> but did not have love for students,<br />it could be a complete waste.<br />
  4. 4. Love is patient when it is necessary to repeat a <br />concept over and over to a student who is having difficulty.<br />
  5. 5. Love is kind when students and other teachers falsely accuse me of some wrongdoing.<br />
  6. 6. Love is not jealous when another teacher has mature and motivated students while mine are just average.<br />
  7. 7. Love is not proud and boastful when my students improve greatly and really want to come to my class.<br />
  8. 8. Love is willing to be open and flexible with my schedule to fit in with the needs of others.<br />
  9. 9. Love does not cause my students to lose face when they fail to do their assignment or turn them in late but seeks to help them understand the importance of self-discipline.<br />
  10. 10. Love does not broadcast my students' problems<br />and misdeeds to other teachers.<br /> <br />Love keeps trying even when it seems a student <br />will never understand what are we doing.<br /> <br />Teaching methods and textbooks will eventually <br />be discarded but love is everlasting.<br /> <br />
  11. 11.  <br />These three things I have learned through teaching:<br />endurance, patience and love, <br />but the greatest of these is<br />LOVE. <br />By Fr. Ron Nuzzi<br />
