Got Milk ?

Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation. 1 Peter 2:2

Having experienced the birth of two grandsons in the last 2 months, it is amazing how they root and crave milk. The fact that they are born with this immediate trait is astounding. But also watching their two siblings put milk into a league of it’s own and preference reminds me of the importance and substance of this quote of the bible.

"Craving milk” is Saint Peter’s expression: He has already explained that we are born again through the living and enduring Word of God. Everything else withers and fades away, “but the Word of the Lord stands forever” (1 Peter 1:25). That Word tells of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ to bring us a living hope and a secure inheritance. Pure spiritual milk indeed!

When we try and make it on our own; the world does not quench our thirst for spiritual milk. We must live by the Word and crave our spiritual growth to have the salvation we truly thirst. Placing ourselves in an environment that nurtures us enables us to have spiritual milk to give to others in the love and communion with others.

Prayer – Dear Lord, touch our hearts and bodies with your spiritual milk everyday to nourish and help others in the world.
