Lord Jesus, give me the dependence and trustfulness and humility of a child, the wisdom of a serpent, and the innocence of a dove.
- “And He called a child to Himself and set him before them, and said, ‘Truly I say to you, unless you are converted and become like children, you shall not enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever then humbles himself as this child, he is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.'” (Matthew 18:2-4)
- “… be wise as serpents and innocent as doves.” (Matthew 10:16)
- “… be wise in what is good, and innocent in what is evil.” (Romans 16:19)
