Gospel Reading: Matthew 21:28-32
“Yet, even when you saw that, you did not later change your minds and believe him.”
A word that we frequently use in the Church is “accompaniment”: we encourage others along on their journey toward the Lord. Teachers are in a unique position to be able to accompany our students as we draw them closer to the remarkable beauty of a life centered on the Gospel. Admittedly, some of them will come to him more readily than others. However, we must remain steadfast as we invite them all to consider the Lord’s goodness.
Have you prayed for students who may challenge you because they do not yet know God’s love?
