This morning I was reading Hebrews 5:7-14. The closing verses express a frustration: "About this we have much to say which is hard to explain, since you have become dull of hearing." The writer goes on to say "You need milk, not solid food."
There is only one way to become more knowledgeable about our bibles. That is to read our bibles. There is only one way to learn the history of the Christian family. That is to study this history.
It may seem like a daunting task - to suddenly know the bible. Out of frustration, too many will fail to start.
It is a new year. Make yourself a promise, a simple promise. In the next four months, read one book of the bible's many books. Get out a piece of paper and take some notes. Write down your questions. Ask me or another mentor of yours.
There is milk enough to nourish and sustain all of God's little ones. That milk will never run out or be taken away. It would be helpful for a few to move toward more solid food. And that move begins with the smallest and most achievable of goals.
