All who work with babies and bottles, toddlers and high chairs, building blocks and toy boxes enjoy one of the special delights life offers.

What is true of infant humans is equally true of infant believers in God's family.
Knowledge of God’s Word is helpful because it gives our faith substance, stabilizes us when we’re tested, enables us to handle Scripture accurately, equips us to detect error, gives us confidence, and erases our fears.
