Rapping the Scriptures

My three-year-old was recently assigned to recite a scripture as part of the annual children's program at church. I conquered the daunting task of teaching such a tiny kid a scripture by getting him to say it with rhythm like a nursery rhyme--or an unusually spiritual rap song. And I added a couple hand gestures.

While practicing at home, he frequently sang the scripture with the enthusiasm of a young rap star.  I wasn't sure how this would go over--I hoped his extreme cuteness would compensate for his lack of reverence and the fact that he had absolutely no idea what the scripture meant.  But at church, he recited the scripture brilliantly and with an unusual dose of dignity.
