Heck, I'm not even mad, that's amazing!
So, I'm driving in the car with my boy and from the backseat I hear him sing the following:
Robin laid an egg
Batmobile lost it's wheel
and the Joker got away.
2 things came to mind:
1. How easy some things can be passed down by oral tradition. Many of us probably remember that song, which has never been written down as far as I know.
It's interesting how some things couldn't be suppressed even if we tried and yet other things are so difficult to pass down, typically the stuff of redeeming value.
2. How things can be learned wherein the full meaning is not realized. When I learned the song, it never occurred to me that Robin laying an egg was a play on Robin being named after a bird, and birds do indeed lay eggs.
I thought about the multitude of things we teach our kids at home and at church, particularly of a spiritual nature, the fullness of which they may not realize for years to come. But, I think we lay a foundation for the future, giving them a theological skeleton on which flesh is added over time.
