English Patient Joyland Teacher

Setting: Mark and Naomi's son, Daniel, came home from Joyland one week singing the hymn, "Great Is My Faithfulness".

Parents: What did you say, Daniel?

Daniel: Great is My Faithfulness.

Parents: No, no, the real words are Great is "Thy" Faithfulness.

Daniel: No, it's "My" Faithfulness. Teacher JN said so.

Someone pointed out to me that this rendition of the song would make sense if teacher JN was actually using "my faithfulness" as a metonym for Jesus.

This reminds me of the verse

Proverbs 22:6
Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.
