Hebrews 5 - NIV

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.

PEOPLE WHO LIVE ON MILK
Shared by: John Gaston on Jan, 2014
Summary: Milk is a wonderful, but only till age 5. To grow past that, we must have solid food. The same is true in the spiritual realm. But many Christians live in perpetual infancy. They want only milk. They're geriatric spiritual babies. See God's directions!
