Hebrews 1: 1 -2: "Long ago God spoke to the fathers by the prophets at different times and in different ways. In these last days, He has spoken to us by [His] Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things and through whom He made the universe."
Style. What is it? God throughout history has used a variety of styles in His communicating with man. Jesus used a variety of ways to communicate truth to man. Can we think of a better model on how to teach?
Charles Spurgeon is quoted, "Don't just throw the seed - grind it, slice it, and put a little honey on it." Style is the way that we deliver the lesson to the student. As WTB says, "The way I get the what into the who."
What is your primary style? What other methods do you use? Do you stagnate in one style or vacillate with variety? Consider today the multitudes of methods that you can maintain throughout the school year. Make a list -check it twice - and then most importantly - put them into practice.
