Music. You know that song that gets stuck in your head and you sing it for the next 4 days…as you bide your time waiting for another song to take its place?!
Its a small world…
This is the song that never ends…
Any Christmas carol…
One of the very first songs that most church kids learn is Jesus Loves Me. Simple. Catchy. Memorizable.
As I’ve been singing this with my children as we sit at the table or drive around town (Atlanta traffic usually offers much time for sitting in the car…still…on the interstate or at traffic lights)…I always get stuck on one line.
“For the Bible tell me so…”
Such a powerful truth of this song that is oft overlooked – and one that we as Christian parents need to teach our children from the beginning.
The Authority and Truthfulness of the Word of God.
If you don’t believe the Word is accurate and truthful and without error in what it says – then why believe it? That is precisely why I hate political ads in our country. You can never believe what is being said. There is no use even trying to figure it out. The good thing with the Bible is you don’t have to figure it out.
God said that the Word is true, living, active, useful for instruction.
The best thing the Bible teaches us is the Gospel. No other way will we know that we need a Savior but by the Word of God. And if we don’t believe what it says than how are we to believe what it says about us, or about Jesus, or about his love for us, His Children?
So, while you have the chance (Deuteronomy 6), please teach your children that God gave us His Word and it can be wholly believed and rested upon as they grow up, walk with Christ, and serve him in anyway He has for them.
