1Corinthians 3: 1-3
verse 2: “I gave you milk, not solid food, for you were not yet ready for it. Indeed, you are still not ready.”
When I first read this passage, it always makes me feel a little defensive. Certainly I am not a spiritual infant! But I know I am. In many ways, spiritual milk is all I am able to process. I think Jesus was saying we have to let go of worldly concerns in order to fully concentrate on God. The more I am able to “turn my eyes upon Jesus”, the more I am able to accept and process His Word. Worldly concerns must come second. When I put Godly concerns first, I will make Godly decisions, and grow out of my infancy.
Heavenly Father, I want to grow out of my spiritual infancy. Help me always to remember to turn to you and to include you intentionally in all of my life decisions. Amen
