On the Bottle

bbottleA woman was talking about the joys and pitfalls of being a mother when she mentioned her child of five who was still drinking milk from a baby bottle. With a frustrating sigh she ended saying, “Well, at least he fixes his own bottles.”

Apparently, many Christians haven’t reach this level of maturity. Not only are they still on a diet of milk only, but they can’t even fix their own bottles. They insist their pastors and teachers do this for them.

Either we need to get into the meat of the Word of God or, at least, learn to make our own bottles.

Hebrews 5:12 (NIV)
“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!”
