Music is a God-given means of teaching the Bible to one another (Colossians 3:16), and music is an especially ideal method for teaching the Bible to children. My kids are 2 and 5, and we have had so much fun learning to sing hymns together.
We try to play fun, upbeat Christian music in our home throughout the day, and then I play these songs for the kids at night as they lay down to sleep (affiliate link to the music on amazon). But one way to instruct the kids in solid doctrine during this season is to teach them the words to great hymns of the faith. They don’t fully understand all the words right now, although they understand more than one might expect!
Our kids need solid truths running through their hearts and minds when they face heartbreak, loss, pain, and challenges, and I trust that the words to some of the hymns we are teaching them will ring in their hearts long after this season where I sit on the couch beside them to teach and instruct them….
