We have been listening to Genesis every day for the past week. There's a whole theological explanation behind listening vs. reading that maybe sometime I'll get into. The great part about listening is that the Scriptures really become part of the fabric of your day. I am amazed what the children have memorized simply by hearing Scripture read over and over again. And I as an adult find myself catching new things every time I hear the same story. We don't require the kids to pay 100% attention, sitting absolutely still, every time we turn the Bible on. They just get the bits and pieces as they play, color, eat, or do whatever they're doing. What a difference it is making in our daily devotion to God!
