In Psalm 127, children are referred to as arrows in the hand of a warrior. As warriors, we should be prepared to aim those arrows in the correct direction. Starting today, we will look at a few Scripturally based questions and answers each week adapted from the Westminster Shorter Catechism to teach our children so that they can be "aimed" in the right direction. Take these truths to your children, grandchildren, classroom, and learn them yourself. Don't doubt the ability of little ones to understand theology, they understand more than we realize! Join us as we glorify our Maker by learning about Him and what He has made.
