A GOD-LED OR WORLD-LED LIFE?

When we try feeding infants solid food, they either throw up, cry or push the food away. Some infants accept the solid food, but they vomit it out because their body is still not ready to digest it. Some others do not even accept it because they cannot enjoy it – one bite and they will zip their mouths and cry if you try giving them more. Apostle Paul understood this aspect about infants very well. That is why when he was addressing the church in Corinth, who were quarreling, having strife and jealousy among themselves, he told them that they were behaving like mere infants in the faith.

STANDING ON SOLID GROUND

Have you seen a little baby, an infant, moving around? I’m a mother of an infant now and I often observe that my child does not stay on a particular object or in a particular space for more than a few seconds. She does not even know which object is good for her and which is not, and so she goes around trying to touch, pick and put everything that she comes across in her mouth. Just like a little baby is clueless and gullible, those who are still infants in their faith in Jesus Christ, tend to lose track and are easily stirred by emotions, circumstances or teachings that come their way. That is why, Paul tells us that we should no longer be infants, but grow and become mature in Christ.
