Boy Commentary

Boy passage reflects on a young boy that expresses all that he has learned and experienced in life. All duties that teach him about responsibility to become mature such as throwing the trash, mowing the lawn and using the weed eater show the way he will be responsible in the future by getting chores done and cleaning after himself. It also explains how he has hobbies. It is important for young boys to have freedom of fun and play sports such as football, riding a bike and going fishing. These are also a part of maturing for the fact that exercising makes you grow healthy. His respective attitude is also a part of his life. He helps his parents, dresses properly—no sagging, covers his mouth when he coughs and does not pop his chewing gum out loud to startle people. This shows his respect towards society and it is also an important part of maturing. Love is definitely exposed in this passage. Since love is one of the most important elements of growing and maturing, Boy explains how to love your parents by hugging them and kissing them because you really never know when they will not be there for him anymore. Not to say, he also describes how the presence of God is love by going to church every Sunday. He expresses his love towards God by asking if you will sing like you mean it by singing from the bottom of your heart. In other words, there is no sense of going to church if you don’t sing to him. Growing to become responsible, respectful, healthy and lovable are all duties that young boys have to go through in life to mature and Boy passage explains how his life duties have been a part of his life and growing towards maturity.
