The Process and Purpose of Christian Education
Text: Give ear, O my people, to my instruction. Turn your ear to the words of my mouth. 2 I will open my mouth to share a lesson. I will speak about puzzling problems from long ago, 3 things we have heard and known, things our fathers have told us. 4 We will not hide them from their descendants. We will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD, his power, and the wonders that he has done. 5 He set up testimony for Jacob. In Israel he established the law. He commanded our fathers to make it known to their children. 6 Then the next generation would know it, even the children not yet born. They would rise up and tell their children. 7 Then they would put their confidence in God, and they would not forget the deeds of God, but they would keep his commands. 8 Then they would not be like their fathers, a stubborn, rebellious generation, a generation that did not keep their hearts steadfast, whose spirits were not faithful to God (EHV).
