It’s the first of October, Children’s Da— the start of the PSLE examinations! In a few hours, my students will be on their way to the examination halls – taking the first major examination of their lives.
Please revise your work and feel free to ask me any questions, okay?
“Cher, who do you think will get the higher score… Is it him or me?”
Sigh. I meant ask me questions about English…
For the first time I understood the heart of the father, and meant it when I said:
“Both of you are my students, don’t have to compare and compete. I’ll be proud to see both of you do well.”
I’m thankful for Heart of God Church and Pastor Tan Seow How and Pastor Cecilia Chan… Where I learnt that we all have a gifting we can serve God with. Even among hundreds and thousands of people, each individual is special and has their own gifting; we don’t need to compete with each other. It’s easy to be insecure and forget that God has made each of us special – fearfully and wonderfully! And in this test of life, you just need to do your best instead of looking left and right.
Maybe He is also telling us: “You are my children, don’t compare, don’t compete. I’ll be proud to see both of you do well.”
All the best for your examinations later, kiddos~
