Throughout the history of the church, godly men and women have taken seriously the command to “lay up these words of mine in your heart and in your soul” and to “teach them to your children, talking of them when you are sitting in your house, and when you are walking by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.”
We have been given great help in our task by men who wrote instructional material that we could then use with our children. The Greek word katechesis refers to instruction by word of mouth. We instruct our children with questions and answers that cover the great truths of the Bible.
By doing this with music, we help them create a memorable mental framework for truth. As they grow older, they will be confronted with competing beliefs, assertions, worldviews, half-truths, and lies. Having heard the truth in their youth and having a solid framework for knowing what is true about God, themselves, and the world, they will be equipped to navigate what they hear in the future.
