At the moment of truth, you will not rise to the level of expectation, but will fall to the level of training. (Classroom banner)

We are often disappointed when something or someone fails to achieve the heights we had anticipated. Expectations are often much higher than they ought to be because we think too much of an individual or an idea that hasn’t been fully tested. The classroom banner is a great reminder of  the necessity of training and an incentive to seek it before performing.

Students are not greater than their teacher. But the student who is fully trained will become like the teacher (Luke 6:40).
