A new born baby just arrived in the Deaton family, the sixteenth grandchild,
the eight granddaughter, Willow. What a precious sweet gift from God she
is. Children are a joy in any normal household, as is the newly
born-again Christian to the Church.
Willow is very content to have the milk she needs now, but just like our
latest grandson, Caleb, who is six months old now, she will want to add her
Nanny's homemade apple sauce. Then later she will want to have the apple
itself, as well as many other solid foods. It's normal.
But is it normal for a Christian to say I am content to stay on the milk of

are satisfied with "the simple things," and fail to study God's Word, as II Tim.
2:15 commands. A new-born babe in Christ is a joy to behold, but every
born-again Christian should grow through the study of the Word. I Pet. 2:2 says:

Are you hungry for something more than you are allowing yourself? Get
yourself into the study of the Bible, stop at the Christian book store and pick
up a good book on Christian living. Time changes at mid-night so you will
have an extra hour in the morning. The old you would say: "I'll use that
extra hour for myself, and sleep in," but if you give that extra hour to God,
and come to Sunday school in the morning you will never regret it.
You hungry for something more, something that will help you grow! May
the Lord bless your week-end, and never forget that you are loved!!!
