Growing up...

Our youngest grandson will be two years old next month, but until recently he was still clinging to a wee bit of babyhood.Throughout the day he would drink his water or other beverages from a cup, but he loved having a baby bottle of milk in the morning and one before bed. For some reason, he wouldn't drink milk any other time or any other way. Last week, his mama was finally able to wean him from his bottle.

Growing up isn't always fun. Like my grandson who didn't want to give up his baby bottle, growing up involves letting go of childish things. A child is self absorbed. They don't spend their days concerned about or caring for others, but a mature adult thinks of others. The body of Christ needs mature, full grown believers to help care for spiritual babies and children. The body of Christ needs spiritual mothers and fathers who are willing to "adopt" and mentor the spiritual orphans that are prevalent in our culture.

How do I help myself to grow in spiritual maturity?  (Join me for the rest of this post on Sunday, April 7th at Woman to Woman Ministries where each Sunday I share a bit of Sunday Soul Food!)
