Valuing spiritual manhood

I REMEMBER LOOKING ONE DAY at a painting entitled "Peace" by the 19th-century English painter William Strutt. It's an illustration of "the peaceable kingdom" described in Isaiah 11: "The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them."

The composition shows a child perhaps ten years old, surrounded by various animals. A large and serious—but benevolent—lion is prominent. Other powerful, ferocious beasts are there—a bear, a leopard, a wolf. They are standing or lying down alongside several other animals, including a lamb, a sheep, and a calf.
