Teach the "Whats" & the "Whys"

I know I write often about how much it matters for us to be grandparents (parents) who hand down confident faith by teaching the "whats" and the "whys", but there is a reason I do this - because it is true. Yes, we absolutely must teach the ones we love what we believe - what the Bible says. We want them to know what they believe, so we teach them. But, if we stop there, we have not fully handed down confident faith. We have not equipped them to stand firmly when they are asked why they believe what they believe - and they will be asked.

We must teach the ones we love the "whys" - why they are able to believe what they believe - and there are solid reasons why they are able to believe. When they know what they believe and why they believe it, then they will be equipped to stand firmly and have a confident faith.

So, teach the "whats", but also teach the "whys" - and ask your church to do the same.
