11/3/19: Hebrews 5:1-14; Psalm 105:1-15; Proverbs 26:28
Hebrews 5: 11 We have much to say about this, but it is hard to make it clear to you because you no longer try to understand. 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! 13 Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness. 14 But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil.
Once again we see scripture warn against the danger of being a “lazy believer.” It is so very easy to skip a day of Bible reading … and then to skip two … and then to just stop reading. In our physical lives maturing is a daily evolutionary process taking years. But each day we are physically maturing although it may be imperceptible. .
Each day that we read and study we are maturing, again, maybe so slowly as to not be obvious, but we are growing!
