do you use a cover sheet?

"Be very careful, then, how you live -- not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity..." Ephesians 5:15

Temptation to cheat is no greater than in the classroom during testing.  To discourage cheating, cover sheets are a common school tool.  Recently i laminated some for a class.  While all the students had individualized their cover sheet with beautiful,colorful drawings, one caused my jaw to drop.  The picture was marked vividly with tears, pain and blood.  The cover sheet appeared to be covering up much more than test material.

Lord, we can't always prevent others from cheating, but we can be attentive to the needs and pain in their life.  Give us the strength, wisdom and gentleness to uncover the truth of ones in our care and minister to them.  Through the laughter and smiles, help us to LISTEN FOR THE CRIES.  May we be ready to respond in honesty, love and action.

have a watch-filled day!
