Am I mature in God’s ways? Am I eating solid food? Can I teach others what God is saying and doing today?
- Am I being intentionally difficult? Do I have a bad habit? Will I choose to be mature?
- I can teach others if I cultivate the habit of listening to God. I can be of help if I learn from what I am hearing.
- Being able to distinguish what is right is something I must practice. It doesn’t come easy but it produces growth for me and my family.
- God’s goal for us is to be mature. We should be wise enough to be able to teach others. Will we have the discipline to learn what God is doing in our lives and to learn the lesson God has in mind for us? Will we break the bad habit of not listening.
- My mantra should be “Listen to God and learn”.
I want to be mature. May I listen and learn.
“I have a lot more to say about this, but it is hard to get it across to you since you’ve picked up this bad habit of not listening. By this time you ought to be teachers yourselves, yet here I find you need someone to sit down with you and go over the basics on God again, starting from square one—baby’s milk, when you should have been on solid food long ago! Milk is for beginners, inexperienced in God’s ways; solid food is for the mature, who have some practice in telling right from wrong.”
