How Important Is It To Teach Your Kids The Books Of The Bible?

When did you learn the books of the Bible?

I am willing to bet that most adults who have the books of the Bible memorized learned them as a kid.  Kids are such sponges! It's so much easier to memorize lists of information like that as children.

I think I was probably four or five years old when I learned the books of the Old Testament.  I went to VBS at a little mountain church, and there was a teenage girl there with an acoustic guitar and long brown hair who sang the Bible books song every day.  I have no idea who she was, but I can still almost see her in my mind.  I hope wherever she is, the Lord blesses her for her service at that VBS, because it has served me well to have the books of the Bible memorized, and it all started with that song.

I am really hoping to start teaching my "big" kids the books of the Bible as part of our homeschooling this fall, but how important is it to learn the books of the Bible?  

I would suggest it's not as important as we might think.  

You can read all my thoughts on teaching children the books of the Bible, and what is more important than that, on Tommy Nelson today!  

What do you think?  Is it important for kids learn the books of the Bible?  How did you learn?  Comment here or there and tell me what you think!
