Make a place in your week for an inspiring biography/autobiography.
As a Christian, I have been a bit reluctant to do so because I want to keep my focus on Christ; however worthwhile lessons, encouragement and exhortation can come from the lives of everyday people living out exemplary commitments.
I was reminded of this somewhat accidently as I was flying through the internet, looking for knowledge-resources-inspiration to make me better prepared for the upcoming school year as a high school teacher. I came across this youtube video, titled “Amazing Physics Teacher” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cfW_2tzusyI and spent 12 minutes of my short life watching an amazing life. I am sharing this on this site because of what makes this man’s life inspiring.
I’m only sharing one of several lessons I got out of this video: Insert the small words and gestures that tell people you care about them, without expecting reciprocation. Human life is a tapestry of many threads, our words and deeds. Doing our duty, our jobs, supports the lives of others; showing love and caring helps make their lives worth living.
