+ Too many of us as adults continue to view the Small Catechism as a children’s textbook?
+ Dr. Martin Luther, however, did not write the Small Catechism to be simply used by Pastors as a “textbook” for children’s instruction?
+ Luther primarily intended it to be a family “prayer book” that is used frequently in the Christian home by parents as they disciple their children!
+ Check out the headings of each of the six chief parts of the book and see that Luther states: “As the head of the family should teach it in a simple way to his household.”
+ If you need a Catechism for your home, ask Pastor Tim!
+ What kind of modeling would go on in our families if parents would keep their Bible and Small Catechism handy and review a portion of it as part of their daily family devotions!
