Children can be pretty stinking cute sometimes. They can do some things that make us laugh because of their innocence. Other times we may find it adorable the way they cling to their bottles or clutch their favorite toy as they go through the day...but their ways don't stay adorable forever, right?
What if we went around drinking our coffee from a bottle or sucked on a pacifier to get through the afternoon without a breakdown? There comes a time when everyone grows up and has to leave those childish things and ways behind, because it's the way life works. It's the same in the Christian life. As we mature as believers, there are things that we leave behind because we have moved beyond...or should have moved beyond. Hebrews 5:11-14 also attests to this.
We are not to be stagnant and stupid, but to faithful and flourish.
