“You shall make two Cherubs of gold from both ends of the cover.”
~ Exodus 25:18

God gave incredibly precise instructions for building the Temple and everything in it.

The cover of the Ark – which housed the Torah and the tablets of the Ten Commandments – needed to have two cupid-like winged angels on it.

Of all the figures in this beautiful universe, why did God chose something that looked like a child?

Because when it comes to wisdom, being ‘childish’ is the best attitude you can have: they’re curious, unassuming and know they don’t know anything.
