Unless you change and become like children

A reflection on 2 King 5:1–14.

The unsung girl, unnamed, enslaved,
Ensured that Naaman would be saved
From what oppressed him day and night,
Despite his military might.
She spoke, which then set into motion
What made in Israel a commotion
With first, the king, then Naaman, too,
Who thought Elisha had no clue
About a high and mighty cure —
Except, the Jordan made him pure,
With skin just like a little boy’s!
Which goes to show, it took no poise,
God’s healing power to portray,
Since mighty love is child’s play.
