WHEN   I   WAS   A   CHILD!

1Cor. 13:11 "When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known."

************

When I was a child,
I spoke of foolish things;
I ran and played and laughed,
To me…life had no boundaries.

But, there came a time when I grew up,
And put away childish things;
The things of the past did not suffice,
They had a shallow ring.

For there is more to do in life,
Than doing just as we please;
To never grow up…not rewarding,
Just self-indulgent and a life of ease.

One day…our toys we shall put away,
Take a step on maturity's road;
We'll not look back (maybe just a peek),
And, we'll leave this child's abode.

One day…we shall experience,
The perfect LOVE of our God;
All else…we'll put away,
No longer a child…we'll call Him our LORD.

His perfection epitomized,
His LOVE in full array;
We'll want more and more,
More of He who is LOVE…each day.

The rest of life shall fall in line,
For we have put first things …first;
We'll finally have the message,
Of LOVE…from a pure heart!
