We had a great family day this past Saturday. I want to share it with you.
After b’fast, I read Psalm 51 to my wife and children. I taught them by using a handout given to me by a man who encourages fathers to teach their children the Word of God. Then, we listened to 2 songs about that psalm that accentuated different parts of the psalm. With an infinite God, there could be an infinite number of songs written about psalm 51. These 2 songs were powerful and brought out the psalm even more.
As we listened to the songs, we held up the verse number on our hand. Everyone had a Bible. When each person found the verse being sung, they held up the number that corresponded to it. For example, when he sang about verse four, we each held up 4 fingers. We kept changing as the song and verse changed. It was really fun and made us all stay on our toes.
I love teaching my children the Word of God because it will last forever. It’s not just something that is taught on Sundays. This past Saturday was a special day to all of us.
I encourage you to spend creative time in the study and meditation of God’s Word. There’s no better “high”!!!
