5 Fun Ways to add kid's Worship Music and Bible Songs Throughout The Day
There is a famous quote that says “Music, it feeds the soul”. Have you noticed that if you put something to song, you remember it so easily? That truth rings even greater when it comes to children. Think of all the kids shows. They all have music. The catchier the better.
Many researchers have concluded that musical experiences support the formation of important brain connections in a child’s formative years. Making Bible study a part of that formation through music is an ideal way to “train up a child in the way he should go”. Proverbs 22:6. Music will help them retain and enjoy learning God’s word and memorizing Bible verses.
The Bible instructs parents and those caring for children to teach them God’s word in every aspect of their lives. “You shall teach them to your children, speaking of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. And you shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates” Deuteronomy 11:19-20a.
Music certainly helps make this command not only possible but practical. How cool is it to sing a good morning song, a good night melody or hum a tune while working? Combining music with God’s Word makes memorizing Scripture fun and easy. It can be one of the best ways of explaining the Bible to a child.
