2 Thoughts About Repetition

1) It’s not a bad word

Many today see memorization and repetition as something “old school” or “out of date”.  However, I’ve never heard parents say they only say no once a day or a teacher share that they only repeat the material they are covering when they review for a test.  Repeating important concepts when teaching can really help the information “sink in”.  Jesus’ own apostles had to have things repeated to them (Jesus spent 40 days with them after His Resurrection – I’m sure there was some repetition going on there).

2) Do it – we never learn our multiplication tables by going over them once a week or once a month.  Don’t forget to repeat, reiterate and communicate multiple times  important aspects of the faith.  Repetition, after all, is mother of all learning.
