Give instruction to a wise man and he will be yet wiser; teach a righteous man (one upright and in right standing with God) and he will increase in learning. (Proverbs 9:9 AMP)
Hear instruction and be wise, and do not refuse or neglect it. (Proverbs 8:33 AMP)
I have been busy the last few days getting a Powerpoint Presentation ready. Today, I had the privilege of introducing Birdwatching to two classes at Winter Haven Christian School. One class was 9th and 10th graders and the other was 6th and 7th graders. This was their last full day before their summer break. This was a diversion for them.
Both classes seemed interested and maybe some of them will become future birdwatchers. We always try to spark an interest in our next generations coming behind us.
Dan was along and took a few photos while I did the presentation. He was also the one who helped carry things in.
I also tried to encourage those who may be interested in the photographic side of birdwatching.
Here are some of the photos from this morning:
What worthy instruction! The Lord Jesus Christ encouraged His disciples, and larger audiences, to consider the fowl of the air, how God takes care of them — so you are following Christ’s example when you teach the teachable about birds. The first teacher who encouraged bird-watching to me, at the end of 2nd grade, was Mrs. Thelma Bumgardner (Damascus Elementary School), who also taught us the vital meaning of John 3:16. Thanks for all you two do, Lee and Dan — the children are very privileged to have your instruction in their classroom. .
Thank you, Dr Jim. I deeply appreciate your words.
