Psalm 36:5-6

Your loving kindness, O LORD, extends to the heavens, Your faithfulness reaches to the skies. 6 Your righteousness is like the mountains of God; Your judgments are like a great deep. O LORD, You preserve man and beast.

This psalm really spoke to me today. I attend classes at Clark College, and, while it is expected, it can still be disappointing to learn that a teacher is a feminist, or an atheist  or at least, does not agree with your beliefs. There are different ways to react to these findings. One is to go into a depression because you have once again found out that your teacher is not perfect. Another reaction is to immediately dislike this professor and believe that nothing they say or do will be worth it to stick around. There is another option: Accept it and lean on the Lord to help you through the class. God will always be the perfect teacher. He isn’t human, you know.

But your teachers are. And even those that do hold the same beliefs can mess up. Just because you have a teacher that’s not one with you and your beliefs does not mean you will have an awful time in that class. Trust me, seeing the world through clear biblical glasses will help you to accept and move on, whether to try and show your teacher why you believe what you do, or just taking every thing they teach and compare it to God’s Word. The verses in this psalm helped to bring this thought to my attention.
