Praying from James 3:1 relating to Judgment, Teaching, Warning
Dear Lord, help me to be humble and discerning when it comes to teaching others. May I not rush into the role of a teacher without considering the weight of responsibility that comes with it. Give me wisdom and understanding to know when I am ready to take on this role and guide me in using my words and actions to uplift and encourage those around me. Help me to always remember that with the privilege of teaching comes the accountability of a heavier judgment. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
Verse: Let not many of you be teachers, my brothers, knowing that we will receive heavier judgment.
This is a Command. The verse commands the reader to not become a teacher, as they will receive a heavier judgment.
