Teaching - Improving - Loving

A friend of mine recently shared the following experience: “Years ago, I was called to teach the
older boys in Primary. My first reaction was that this would be an easy assignment—all I needed to do was glance through the lesson and look for the activities that were recommended for my
class. But after a couple weeks of doing this, I realized I had been mistaken.

“So I began studying the Primary manual lesson for myself, seriously considering each of the scripture references and General Authority quotes. At first, I had my personal concerns and needs in mind, and I was pleasantly surprised at the spiritual experiences I received by studying the manual this way. Then I began to look at the lesson with my students in mind. I wanted them to have a similar experience. Once I did that, I began seeing significant spiritual growth in some of my Primary children.”

President Ezra Taft Benson said, “The sequence to possessing the power of God in our teaching [is:]… Seek first to obtain the word, then comes understanding and the Spirit, and, finally, the power to convince” (Teaching, No Greater Call, p. 14). If we are going to help children understand and live a gospel truth, we first need to learn and live it ourselves.
