When I was an infant, I did not know how to control my bowels. And so I was given diapers to manage my ablutions for me. But I learned. I internalized the control of my ablutions, and I cast off the diapers. When I was a toddler, I did not know how to ride a bike. And so I was given training wheels to balance my bike for me. But I learned. I internalized the balancing of my bike, and I cast off the training wheels. When I was a child, I did not know how to distinguish wise from foolish. And so I was given permissions and boundaries by my parents who made wise choices for me. But I learned. I internalized that wisdom, and no longer needed to depend on my parents for it. When I was a young man, I did not know good from bad, fate from choice. And so I was given God to show me good from bad, to lead my fate and judge my choices. But I learned. I internalized my morality of good and bad, my sole sovereignty over destiny and choices, and no longer needed God to do it for me. When I make a mistake, I don't regress to diapers; I don't dig out my old training wheels, or ask my parents for more boundaries or look back to God for morality. When we are children, we have children's things; but the time comes to put away children's things and take responsibility for ourselves. That is what it means to grow up.
