Repetition is a necessity (Philippians 3:1)

Throughout Scripture, we find that truth requires repetition. From the very beginning of Moses teaching the men of Israel how to train their children, it was repetition throughout every aspect of life (Deuteronomy 11:19). Many times as leaders, we think that one great presentation of truth will change the heart of a person and are very disappointed to find out that in most cases, it fails. Teaching is like fine carpentry. You cannot take a hammer and nail and then with one great stroke, drive the nail in perfectly. It requires many repetitively measured strokes to drive a nail properly. So it is with teaching the word of God. Constant small reminders are much more effective in putting truth permanently into the hearts of God’s people.
