1 Peter 2:1-2
“So put away all malice and all deceit and hypocrisy and envy and all slander. Like newborn infants, long for the pure spiritual milk, that by it you may grow up into salvation-”
This really hit me today like a ton of bricks. I’ve been in the house all day due to the inclement weather, which also means that I’ve been chillin with Nate all day. The whole house is coming down with something that originated with him. So for most of the day, I’ve been wiping a snotty nose and red cheeks and trying to get a stubborn little 9 month old to eat something else besides graham crackers and breastmilk.
Whenever I’m around, all Nate wants to do is nurse. It doesn’t even matter if he’s hungry. If he’s tired, he wants to nurse. If he’s cranky, he wants to nurse. If he’s bored, he wants to nurse. Nate will just about nurse all day if I let him. He loves it.
And then I came across this passage of scripture and the line ” Like newborn infants, long for the pure spiritual milk…” I pray that God places a true longing in me for his Word.
