To picture a burly, bearded, grown, man sitting on the floor pouting while sucking his thumb, like a baby is an uncomfotable and rather disgusing word picture.
Yet, far too often, that is the way of spiritual life for many people.
Stuck on drinking milk, like a baby, even though it's far more important to be eating things (like meat) that make you stronger and capable of growing up.
There is"spiritual milk" and there is also "spiritual meat" (teaching and living that is more than just rehearsing the elementary basics of spiritual life and living).
Growing upI could hardly wait to get my own car, money, and place to live and become an active adult in my small town of Hibbing, Mn... USA!
How much more so concerning growing up as citizens of the Kingdom of God!!!
I want to grow up before I grow old.
We will be teaching and following Yeshua/Jesus into a lifestyle of functioning, mature citizen of His Kingdom as we move forward.
Loving Yeshua/Jesus, Loving people... Come as you are and you will be loved!
