Like newborn infants, long for the pure spiritual milk, that by it you may grow up into salvation— if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is good. 1 Peter 2:2-3
Do you have a baby at your house?
Does a little one live next door?
Do you have a child in your family
That still crawls around on the floor?
Babies drink milk from a bottle.
They cry if they don’t get it quick!
They don’t eat food like you do–at first.
If they did, they might get real sick!
But the Lord wants us all to grow up.
In body, and in spirit, like Him!
If we have asked Him into our heart
He will forgive us of sin.
He doesn’t want us to stay babies–
Needing someone to give us care.
‘Cause we need to feed and tell others
Of the good food that God has prepared!
Milk alone isn’t good for grown-ups.
And children need veggies and such.
We need to taste and chew good food
That our God has provided for us!
Fun fact: We feed ourselves with spiritual food when we read our Bible and pray!
