Actions Shout Louder than Words

Your actions are shouting so loud, I can’t hear what you’re saying.

This poster hangs on my classroom wall. The words leap off to

the young teachers who come to this place, training to change the world.

They study weather, space, the oceans, rocks.

They study authority, truthfulness, fairness.

Always absorbing, always imitating.

For good or bad, a teacher's influence never ends.
We have to be diligent, strong.
We have to remember.
Omnipresent eyes are on us.

Oh, be careful little eyes, what you see,
Oh, be careful little eyes, what you see,
For the Father up above,
Is looking down in love,
So be careful little
eyes what you see.

A civilized, moral society is structured by rules, boundaries. There is a time to say no, a time to set limits, if we love enough.

Everything is not okay.

Blessed are all who fear the Lord, who walk in his ways. You will eat the fruit of your labor; blessings and prosperity will be yours. Psalm 128:1-2
