Hand A Banana

October 05, 2016

  • What makes a good teacher? Sure, your first thought might be pizza parties every Friday, or games for every class session. But the Bible tells us that a good teacher will reveal things about God’s Kingdom in ways that open our eyes to His love. Teachers do so much for us that we may forget they need to see God’s love, too. As a matter of fact, Galatians 6:6 reminds us to be generous to our teachers. It tells us that when we learn from them the truths of God’s Kingdom and live those things out, we should thank them for their influence on our lives. So here’s a Generecipe from Chef Basil to help you do something generous for your teachers.

    Directions:

    Choose one of your teachers to write encouraging notes to.
    Get a bunch of bananas and a Sharpie marker.
    For every banana in the bunch, think of one encouraging sentence to write to your teacher. 

    4. Write each encouraging sentence on a different banana peel.     

    Example - Banana Peel 1 - You are a great teacher. Banana Peel 2 - Thank you for teaching me. Banana Peel 3 - I have learned so much from you as my teacher.

    5. Give the bunch of bananas to your teacher. As you do tell them that you appreciate them a "bunch".

    Before you do this Generecipe, pray the following prayer: 

    “Dear God, thank you for the teachers in my life. Thank you for the ways in which you teach me through them. Help them to see your love for them through my act of generosity.
