11 We have much to say about this subject, but it is hard to explain, because you have become sluggish in understanding. 12 For although by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the very first principles of God’s Word all over again! You need milk, not solid food! 13 Anyone who has to drink milk is still a baby, without experience in applying the Word about righteousness. 14 But solid food is for the mature, for those whose faculties have been trained by continuous exercise to distinguish good from evil.
How many years have I been the man Sha’ul is chastising. I knew of God and believed He existed but I did not trust in God fully to lead my life so I was stuck always on the milk of Twitter-esk versions of His Word. How much more has my life improved with a daily study of His Word!! Truely I understand the psalmist when he wrote “taste and see,” thank you Adonai for the meat of Your Word.
