A Daily Devotion for Wednesday, May 24

Hebrews 5:11-14

We have much to say about this, but it is hard to make it clear to you because you no longer try to understand. In fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of God's word all over again. You need milk, not solid food! Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness. But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil.

The heading preceding these verses in my Bible is: Warning Against Falling Away. I am thinking about all of the years in my younger life that I spent resting assured in my Christian beliefs, but not doing much of anything about that. It really was complacency. Having children brought me back to a more active faith. I never left, but complacency may be even more frustrating for God to see. God has the grace to pull us back to the fold, no matter how much time has passed.

Heavenly Father, you are always there, gently drawing us back to you, always forgiving our lapses and our thoughtlessness . Thank you for welcoming me back to you. Amen

Becky, transforming
