Enough is Enough

Thursday, Aug. 28
“We really should be teaching students how to think on their own. Letting them struggle just enough, but not so much that they give up.”—Laura Lethe, math teacher in Salem, OR. This has been a standard principle in education circles for years. Nothing new, but a good reminder. God practices this policy with us, too. I rather believe that God came up with it long before educators did. None of us has ever been a model soldier, nor will we become one in this life. God understands that. Check out Abraham. Check out Peter. Remember John Mark. So don’t give up the struggle. Your battle assignment is just hard enough for you to handle without giving up. Hang in there! And while you’re at it, give a little encouragement to some other struggling soldier.
