Teachers are patient and kind.
Teachers are not jealous or boastful or proud or rude.
Teachers do not demand their own way.
Teachers are not irritable, and they keep no record of being wronged.
Teachers do not rejoice about injustice but they rejoice whenever the truth wins out.
Teachers never give up, never lose faith, are always hopeful, and endure through every circumstance.
Adapted from 1 Corinthians 13.4-7 NCV
