Devotions from Judy’s heart
Yesterday I took a prayer walk to the Point and sat on the dock. It was a beautiful sunny day and as I sat there with my feet in the water, I was reminded of how I use to do that as a child. I could see the beginnings of the lilies forming in the water, ducks near by and even a baby Heron who looked at me for some time from a short distance away. I thought of the changes in me since then and for I am no longer a child anymore but an adult….. hopefully, have grown spiritually since those days too. In Hebrews 12 the author tells his Christian brothers and sisters that they should be on solid food, not just milk. “for everyone who lives on milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, since he is a child. But solid food is for the mature, for those who have their powers of discernment trained by constant practice to distinguish good from evil.” Even though we are grown up, we still at times have childish responses and fleshly reactions…and maybe some “temper tantrums” too. But may we “grow up in every way into Him who is the head.” ( Eph. 4) and feed on solid food.
