Leviticus 14:1-32; Psalm 119:1-40; Mark 4:21-41

I have fed you with milk, and not with meat. 1 Corinthians 3:2

Babies drink nothing but milk, but as they mature they add to their diet “meatier” things. There is a place for milk, as part of a balanced diet (see Heb. 5:12-15). But as we mature, God’s desire is that we would expand our diet with solid, nutritious spiritual food to help us grow. A simplistic diet keeps us as infants. We need to ingest “meat,” if we want to flourish for God. It is always a challenge to make sure we are eating well in the things of the Lord. May He help us to do so. —N. C. Funston

Open my eyes that I may see,
Glimpses of truth Thou hast for me;
Place in my hands the wonderful key,
That shall unclasp and set me free. —Clara H. Scott
