“I can do all things, all things, all things. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me! Philippians 4:13!”
My son sang this verse when he was quite young. It always made me smile. What mom wouldn’t want to hear her son singing the Scriptures, learning them so they can help and guide him later? It just warms the heart, doesn’t it?
That’s all well and good–until said young son catches sight of Superman. Then the really deep theological questions start to flow.
“Mom, why can’t I fly? Should I try from someplace higher? Will Jesus help me jump over buildings?”
“Well, what does ‘all things’ mean, anyway?”
