an apple a day
i did something uncharacteristic this week. i ventured out of my comfort zone & made an enquiry for teaching job at IMU.
i met a few members of the faculty & they seemed keen to take me on. except they can't understand why i would give up a better paying job to teach medical students.
actually, i thought maybe i'll just do it on a part-time basis, just so i can still keep in touch with recent changes & advances in medicine, & perhaps impart some useful knowledge along the way. after all, it's been said that:
"those who can, teach. those who can't, make bad teachers."
hmm....i wonder if my students would bring me apples.
and i also found it amusing that in Paul's hierachy of Christian workers, teachers outrank healers!!
And in the church God has appointed first of all apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then workers of miracles, also those having gifts of healing, those able to help others, those with gifts of administration, and those speaking in different kinds of tongues. 1 Cor 12:28
do teachers rock or what!!??
