March 18: Who is Your Teacher?

 

Scripture Lesson: Matthew 23:1-10

 

On this date in 1984, Charlie Lau passed away at age 50, after a lengthy battle with cancer. Lau earned his fame as one of baseball’s best hitting instructors. His best years were spent in Kansas City, where his prize pupil was Hall of Famer George Brett.

 

The entire 23rd chapter of Matthew is an indictment against the scribes and Pharisees, two groups within first century Judaism who sought to be particularly pious. They were “teachers of the law,” but Jesus accused them of not practicing what they preached. They were more of a burden than a help in assisting others to follow God’s teachings. They loved the prestige of their position and enjoyed the praise of people. The only teacher truly worth following, however, is Christ, He is the one who will teach the right way of living. Jesus always taught that God was more interested in having people follow His ways because they love Him than in following a set of do’s and don’ts. It is not about us; it is about serving and living each day for God! In looking for someone to help you grow in your faith, find a humble servant who loves the Lord and does his/her best to follow Him each day.

  1. Think of someone who models Christ in the way they live.

  2. Ask that person to help you grow in your faith.

  3. Remember, humble loving service is the key to being Christ-like.

Beware of those who are more interested in their place of prominence than in serving the Master!
