With all the mashed up fruit and vegetables that he is trying, his parents don’t know if he is going to love the food or projectile vomit it right back in their faces!
1 Corinthians 3:1-22
Reference: v.2 I gave you milk, not solid food, for you were not yet ready for it. Indeed, you are still not ready. (NIV Bible)
Explore: I was chatting to one of my friends who has a 10 month old child. He is just starting to eat solids. It sounds like quite an interesting experience as a family. With all the mashed up fruit and vegetables that he is trying, his parents don’t know if he is going to love the food or projectile vomit it right back in their faces! When moving from milk to solids there is a great deal of trial and error. However, when I think of the wonder of bread, chocolate, roast pork and pasta I realise that the effort to move from milk to solids is definitely worth it.
Application: There are many transitions that we all go through in our life time. It may start off with going from milk to solids but it doesn’t stop there. There are transitions with study, work, family, homes… just to name a few. But we also have spiritual transitions too. I’m chatting to a few people at the moment about baptism. That is a wonderful transition where these people are moving from exploring God to committing fully to God. Each transition takes time and exploration and sometimes this can be challenging. But the reward at the end is well worth the change.
Prayer: Lord, each transition brings an element of the unknown. May we have the strength and the faith to step out, even if we don’t know the final result. Amen.
What transitions are you going through at the moment? What transitions need to occur in your life?
