The Child Must Become Man

Come to Him and trust
The simple faith of childhood
Gi’en spiritual milk
Yet the child must become man
Speech, thoughts, reason must mature

written in response to today’s daily prompt at The Daily Post, and inspired by the words of God:

“Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
– Matthew 19:14

‘Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness.’
– Hebrews 5:13

‘When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.’
– 1 Corinthians 13:11
