You wouldn't believe some of the basic things Kindergarten teachers need to teach their 5-year-olds. Kindergarten is all about learning the basics. This is the message of Paul's prayer of intercession for his beloved Philippians: that they would grow in the basics (love, wisdom, righteousness, growth, and glory). It helps to keep our eyes on the goal ahead.
As a bonus, we get to learn the Greek word for intestines. Because that too is a basic, fundamental aspect of our faith.
