These baby steps reminded me to be thankful we have a healthy child. Don't we take this for granted too often? There are parents who will never see their baby walk. There are parents who never had a chance to meet their baby on this earth. There are parents who are see their child regress as disease destroys their little body.
These baby steps also remind me that I should be constantly growing as a Christian. I should be more disciplined and desire to be challenged spiritually through seeking out conversations with unbelievers, immersing myself in books of the Bible that seem to be difficult to grasp, and taking time to pray about all things. It takes discipline to grow and I'm so easily distracted.
|And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual [people] but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ. I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able [to receive it], and even now you are still not able; for you are still carnal. For where [there are] envy, strife, and divisions among you, are you not carnal and behaving like [mere] men?I Corinthians 3:1-3|
As a Christian, in which category might you be found: infant, child, adolescent, or mature adult? Are you continuing to exhibit behavior found only in "babies?"
