12 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! (Hebrews 5:12 NIV)
The time when children are not given solid food is typically pretty short. Infancy is a brief period in life. Then, as we grow, we are given more and more substance.
Our spiritual life is the same. When we begin, in our infancy, we are given the Word. The Word may start out as milk to our soul but it should quickly grow into substance for our lives. We are not meant to continue on in our infancy but to grow and begin to chew the more substantial Word from God. So that we may begin to teach others.
Where are you in your growth cycle?
