1 Peter 2:2 "and like newborn babies, long for the pure milk of the word, so that by it you may grow in respect to salvation"All she wanted was the bottle! Today's verse shares with us to long for God's Word as a newborn child longs for pure milk! While babysitting our granddaughter, I had to put away anything that I was doing so I could get her bottle ready. It was feeding time and all she wanted was to drink her bottle. As I began to heat it up, the cries became louder and louder that she was ready! I wonder if we crave Gods' Word like a newborn. Focused on nothing but the pure milk to help them grow strong. The prior verse tells us to " rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit and hypocrisy and envy and all slander" and focus on His Word! I wonder what we need to get rid of to help us focus on His Word! Let's do a gut check and see what we need to get rid of so we can focus more on God's Word!
