A Teacher’s Goal

Colossians 1 “We proclaim him by instructing and teaching all people with all wisdom so that we may present every person mature in Christ.” [Col 1:9] Each week several of us meet to discuss the book we are studying. This should be our goal, and it falls upon me more than they. Jesus said if any of you would cause one of these little ones to stumble, it would be better to have a millstone hung around his neck and thrown into the sea. That has been before me all the years I have taught as a warning sign. My goal has been and will be as long as I teach; to present everyone who sits under me mature. As i look at the roster of those who have gone before me, I see them standing before Christ mature and whole. 

What is your goal as you speak and live before others?
