On Genes

Updated: Sep 13, 2022

My youngest son has a habit of leaving one or two tablespoons of food on his plate after he finishes a meal. Paul and I always wondered why.

A few days ago, my mother-in law was fretting about my father-in-law. “He leaves one to two tablespoons of food after he eats. Every time. I can’t understand why.”

Wow! A bulb lit inside my head! Alex got that habit from his grandfather! Really… a gene for leaving morsels behind? How else can I explain such behavior? And it’s not nurture because the boys didn’t really grow up seeing their grandfather eat often.

So next time someone comments on a person's behavior, maybe one should look into the role of genes.

No wonder Jesus is perfect. Can you imagine where Jesus’s genes came from?
