“Therefore anyone who sets aside one of the least of these commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven” (Mt 5:19).

Jesus lived the lived the life before and while teaching the life.  He taught, healed and delivered and then sent his disciples to do the same.  This verse Jesus makes is clear, whoever “practices and teaches” will be called great.  Practice is something that is ongoing.  A  teacher who is someone who has done and is still doing what he or she teaches.

Acts 1:1 reiterates this lifestyle.  Luke spoke about all that Jesus began to “do and teach.”  Doing before teaching.  Doing as teaching.

This was the life of Jesus.  Not talk but demonstration.  Teaching but doing so through living.

It really is way of every teacher.
