Let’s relax along mentorship pleasure to bask in varied students’ excuses when facing pressure as they abound for sure… Learner A says, “There is a lion in the way” so I’m late for the reporting schedule today hope to fulfill it later, I pray. Learner B uses blame game, insinuating “the serpent beguiled me” into such tainting thus, I succumbed to the ranting. Learner C retorts with confidence reign “the dove returned not again” when asked of his assignment he forgot in vain. Learner D enumerates alibis to cover negligence even citing Balaam’s talking ass confronting guilty conscience pledging to show next time enduring diligence. Learner E lets absenteeism be justified testifying, “I’m the lost sheep personified needing teacher’s patience, greatly magnified.” Learner F, for missed requirement, declares candidly: “Mine was done perfectly; indeed realistically... ... and then a flaming pterodactyl ate my homework surreally.” Well, as a learner myself, I admit with earnest confession my human nature is no exemption so my heart seeks God for wisdom’s implementation.
*Proverbs 26:13 The slothful man saith, There is a lion in the way; a lion is in the streets. February 4, 2021
