Interesting discussion with the 6th graders that I’m teaching over at the Hillel school today.
We normally think that parents make babies. Seems obvious, right? But, until they have a baby, they aren’t really parents. So, from a certain point of view, babies make parents.
Sure, I was alive before I had Ben, but I wasn’t a parent. Which means I wasn’t really me, as I am now, right? In one important sense, Ben made me.
Same with teachers – I’m not really a teacher, until I have a student.
Babies make parents. Students make teachers. And so on.
Which led to the interesting discussion: if we see the world from this perspective, then who, exactly, made God…?
