As I was reading Deuteronomy 31, I noticed that the last leadership mandate God gave Moses during a crisis was to write a song.

A biblical view of songwriting includes songs that are:

  1. Confrontational
  2. Multigenerational
  3. Unforgettable
  4. Life-giving

As spiritual leaders, we need to remember that music is one of the quickest ways to get God’s Word into the hearts of his people. Therefore, we not only encourage songwriting, but we also encourage our people to feature their own songs in our weekly worship liturgy.
