Teacher Accountability

Scripture

Not many of you should become teachers, my brothers, for you know that we who teach will be judged with greater strictness. – James 3:1

Observation

Individuals who choose to be teachers will be held with greater judgement. 

Application 

When we put ourselves in front of a congregation or small group presenting truths from God’s word we will be held with a greater accountability.   For those of us who teach we must always remember what Paul presented to Timothy.  “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth. – 2 Timothy 2:15

Prayer

Lord give us clarity in our understanding of your Word so that we may present it to those we teach with full competence and humility.
