#6 Did you know the Bible says Christian teachers are held to a higher standard?

You can read it for yourself in James 3:1

My brethren, let not many of you become teachers, knowing that we shall receive a stricter judgment. 

The first time I read this scripture, I said to myself, "Who would ever want to be a teacher and put themselves in a position to receive stricter judgment?" I decided that day I wouldn't be a teacher.

You and I both know God has a sense of humor, and He has given me a "gift" of teaching, and I love it. I know who will be judging me, so I try to make sure everything I teach is Bible-based. 

That does not mean I've got it all figured out, but I'm going to do my best to represent God's word. I figured out I am going to answer to God, so that is my standard. I ask God to help me, and when I get something wrong, I ask Him for forgiveness.

Now you know my standard, I want to "flex" my teaching muscle on this podcast. 

I read 2 Peter one morning, and I read 2 Peter 3:8 and the verse "jumped out" to me. (As you may have learned in previous lessons, this is where I stop and "meditate" on what or why God has pondering this verse)

But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years is like a day.

When I did, I started to see the "math" in this verse and knew if I could figure out what "God-Time" looked like, it would help me give a better picture of what my time was worth if I spend it on "spiritual" stuff.

It took me about a day to figure out and create the calculator, but I thought it was cool and wanted to share it with you.

Below is what it looks like. It's hosted on a different website (Outgrow) but it's free and easy to use. (No Email Required)
