I am not a Baby

1 korintus 13: 11
When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

A newborn requiring treatment and soft food. A mother and father should treat with caution and with gentleness. Babies will grow into children and the children will become teenagers and teenagers will become adult. As we've grown so we can not go back to the children or babies again. Our physically become large and our ability to be better and stronger.

So it is with our spiritual. When we repent and accept Jesus as our savior, we still need a gentle spiritual food. Every day we learn biblical together with a teacher. When there was a slight problem we immediately came to our spiritual mentor. We really depend on the human higher spiritual level. It is also possible to us which easy to anger and often got advice from some of our friends.

But when we've grown spiritually, we must have a better understanding of the spiritual. We are no longer dependent on humans but to Jesus. The problem that comes we should give to Jesus and not man anymore. Our lives should be one with Jesus Christ.

Paul gives an example of a gentle spiritual food. He describes the shape you into some action and attitude of the heart. As found in 1 Corinthians 13:4-8

13:4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth notes; vaunteth not charity itself, is not puffed up,
13:5 doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily Provoked, Thinketh no evil;
13:6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; 13:7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

As our spiritual level is still a baby then that verses is a soft food for us. But when we've grown spiritually then that verses must be integrated within us. We should be able to add the Charity deeds not only of paragraph 3 to 7 only, but must be more than paragraph 7. Because Paul gives an example then we also gives example too.

Today let's we see our spriritual, is that our spiritual is grow up?
God bless You
Jesus Christ is our God
