Here are some Bible sentiments currently going about my head in response to teaching (paraphrased — possibly poorly):
“Be careful how you hear, for to him who has more will be given, but to him who has not, even that which he has will be taken from him.”
“He who is faithful with little will be faithful with much” (and he who is not even faithful with crayons will likely not be faithful with kilns and glazes)
Following these are two questions:
- How does one encourage young people to move from the “have not” to the “have” camps in respect to attentiveness?
- How does one deal with those who cannot even take care with a pencil, and yet are angry about not being able to do “fun projects?”
