Professional growth is one way many Christian teachers seek to serve their schools and students faithfully. While educators use advanced study to better meet their current duties, these learning experiences are also God’s way of preparing them for future opportunities to serve him, his church, and their neighbors.
So what are God’s plans for you, and how do your graduate studies fit into those plans? While only God knows your future, his Word reminds you to take whatever task he places in front of you, including graduate studies, and do it with all your might (Ecclesiastes 9:10), knowing that he will direct your steps (Proverbs 16:9).
Elsewhere in this newsletter is an article about new MLC adjunct, Dr. Michelle Abrego. As you read about her, notice how God has directed her life as she faithfully carries out the tasks he places in front of her, including her own graduate studies.
