Vulnerability ahead ❤
This is my first time teaching English classes in a formal way. I haven't finished to digest it. I feel that I know nothing about the language. one top of this, last week when I saw my first paycheck I thought "this is nothing compare to the effort I do everyday!" It's tiring, stressful and consuming. I really thought it was going to be much more easier than this.
Somehow I reminded myself that this job is more than the money I could make. Teaching goes far beyond my English class hour. Teaching is relationship, example and constant work to see the results I want to see in the students. To be honest, I still care about the money but if I don't learn that the priority in my work is PEOPLE, I'll always complain about it.
Jesus clarifies that whoever in the name of a disciple gives to one of these little ones even a cup of cold water to drink, he shall not lose his reward. My reward? Yes! My reward comes from him when I care about each one of my little ones.
Whatever is your job, whoever you are working with. Don't forget about this promise! Don't forget that money comes and goes but the lifes around us are priceless!
