Describe the last time you were moved to tears by something beautiful.
The older I become the more prone to tears.
Last night my son sent a photo of him and his wife. My son and his wife are private people otherwise I would post it.
My son is teaching a class that he is really excited about. He loves teaching and the interaction he has with students.
Whenever you see someone taking delight in something meaningful it is a beautiful thing, it is perhaps the best thing. There is nothing more heartwarming and satisfying than to open hearts and minds and to brace and support the spirit of students who want to succeed.
What is most enriching is that he does it for free.
I am convinced there is a purity about teaching that money sullies. Isn’t it really true that the best advice ever received is given for free and the worst advice is what is paid for?
So when I hear that expression “You get what you pay for” it was probably first said by some shyster trying to sell something that can be had for free.
I’m looking at my son and his wife and wonder, how different their smiles would be if their pockets were full of money rather than their hearts full of joy.
I don’t think my son would be happy doing anything else. And frankly, although I would be proud of anything he chose to do with his life, his mother and I can’t be any prouder than what we are with what he is doing now.
People are reluctant to share money, but joy has to be shared.
Is there any doubt to the veracity to the statement at 1st Timothy 6:10, “For the love of money is a root of all sorts of injurious things…”
Yeah, when you see joy, you have to give way to tears.
