Something to think about


Many times we try to teach someone from where we are at, but a good teacher will always teach from where the student left off, from where the student is at. For example; when I teach/ share my testimony to a room full of hurting, unforgiving people, I start my teaching with where I was at on my own journey of Un forgiveness and abuse, then I take them to where I want t...o bring them, which is straight to the heart of God. Many abused people have left off where the abuse left off. This is where we find the student many times in a fetal position. As I share the living parable of my life and how God brought me through I embrace where they're at on their journey.
I gently introduce the scripture
Mark 11:25, "And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone,forgive him so that your father in Heaven, may forgive you your sins."Jesus taught that way, the parables he taught with, I believe were taken from the observation of the people in that moment, right where they were at. We must begin our teaching where the student has left off to truly make an impact.
