One good lesson we’ve learned by moving into an estate after the death of a loved one is that you can’t take your earthly belongings with you because everything my father-in-law had was still here. I’m sure he would have taken his cars with him if he could have. However, there is another vital lesson; some things that go unused tend to lose value because time has left them behind. While cleaning the house, I found a brand-new outdoor speaker in the box. I thought it would be great to put it to use, but it required an MP3 player, which we no longer have. The technology has improved since he bought it.
The same thing will happen as you grow in Jesus; things that were useful to you initially have evolved into something more. You’re now off the bottle and have moved on to solid food. If you continue feeding on milk, its value will decrease, and you will become stagnant and your growth stunted. That’s why it’s essential to continue to grow your faith; you don’t want it to deteriorate because you never used it. The technology of your mind continues to increase as you grow older, so your faith needs to grow with it. The way to do that is to trust Jesus with everything, continue to fill your mind with the things of God, and communicate with him daily. Then, peace, comfort, and joy will abound in your life.
for everyone who lives on milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, since he is a child. But solid food is for the mature, for those who have their powers of discernment trained by constant practice to distinguish good from evil. Hebrews 5:13-14
