There was bright student in school who had a problem pronouncing the word "Electricity", for it would always roll out of his mouth as "ElectriKITTY". Now his sympathetic, empathetic class teacher with an intention to help, wanted matters to be set right with proper training at his ward's home itself. So the teacher went to his pupil's home and explained the issue to the composed, well-educated, highly-placed (in society) dad who after a patient hearing sighed "You see that is not my son's fault, it is beyond his capaKITTY to pronounce the word electriKITTY properly".

Just as the teacher was recoiling from a shock, in walked the erudite grandfather who had overheard the conversation from a nearby room " Sir", the grey gent pleaded "Please do not make publiKITTY, about this problem running in our family for generations".

We smile. Are only speech "impairments" inherited from our parents? Is not the deep down sin problem also "transmitted" which all began in the Garden of Eden, when our first parents sank their teeth into the forbidden? No wonder the Scripture says "The human heart is the most deceitful of all things, and desperately wicked. Who really knows how bad it is?" Was not the Saviour sent specifically for performing the much-needed "heart --transplantation" operation (Ezekiel 36:26)?
