Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. – Colossians 3:16 NKJV
Songs help us to remember something that we are trying to learn or memorize.
One of the first songs my son memorized was the ABC’s. He would belt it out whenever we prompted him to sing it.
I started playing classical piano when I was 16 years old, and I gravitated to music without words. I was trying to resurrect a piece by Clementi that I learned in high school and my son liked it, so he came downstairs and asked me to play it again, which made me mess up, so I distracted him with another activity.
The Lord can teach us many things through songs and praise. Amen.
