Email Tips: Rhymes as Learning Aids

This "tip" was originally delivered on Saturday, November 28th, 2009 .

This week’s tip comes from a visitor to the website.
He writes:
“As a boy I was taught the following little poem:

Each time you look inside this book,
five things observe with care,
of whom it speaks,
to whom it speaks,
and why, and when, and where.

It’s the key to understanding the scriptures.”

Teaching the Bible effectively requires simplicity.
This poem clearly communicates the most important
principle in studying the word of truth.

This simple rhyme can accomplish more than pages
of writing or hours of teaching on right division.

Use it when you teach people. Repeat it.
Create other rhymes as learning aids.

If you set it to a tune then you double the
effectiveness. Then we call it a song (Col 3:16).

For his glory,

Justin “sing me a tune” Johnson
