Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord.
7 Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord. Consider the farmer who waits patiently for the coming of rain in the fall and spring, looking forward to the precious fruit of the earth. 8 You also must wait patiently, strengthening your resolve, because the coming of the Lord is near. 9 Don’t complain about each other, brothers and sisters, so that you won’t be judged. Look! The judge is standing at the door!
10 Brothers and sisters, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord as an example of patient resolve and steadfastness.
Everyone knows that teachers are overworked and underpaid. Too often even the students they teach don't understand the effort that is put into each class period. "What If There Were No Teachers?" uses illustrations on the order of Norman Rockwell to let teachers everywhere know that we couldn't live without them.
A beautifully illustrated poem reveals how sad life would be without teachers, and this uplifting book will be a gift that any teacher will cherish. With Teacher Appreciation Day celebrated each year, what better way to say a special "thank you" to those who have given their time and energy to make our world a better place.
