CHILDLIKE FAITH

Faith of a child is great in God’s sight Since it reveals sincere trust in its purest height Showcasing genuine reliance to the Sovereign’s might Devoid of doubt and unbelief along uncertainty-blight. Child-like faith was exemplified by virtuous Bible characters Who in their young age could be considered as heroic masters In subduing evil and vanquishing the bad that perilously deters While fully depending on the omnipotent Lord for triumphant encounters. There was David… fighting as a child, full of courage and valor Crashing the Philistines’ dominance by ending Goliath’s ruthless vigor. Samuel was just a boy when he responded to the Creator’s call with honor To serve sincerely as a prophet, proclaiming truth midst good tidings’ clamor. The Chronicles spoke of King Josiah who at eight years old was Judah’s head Instructed by God’s wisdom, with faith in his advisors… he led; Then we can never forget the lad who willingly shared his fish and bread Which Jesus Christ multiplied to feed the multitudes in their hunger-dread. Indeed, child-like faith* wins God’s heart He even said that having such can open heaven, away from hell’s dart. Now, my dear Son, let your faith in the Lord increase toward service-rampart; Always seek His favour before victorious quests you start.
