I Peter 2:2, 3   Thought/Prayer:  Gulp a Big Glass.  Topics:  2 at end.

“As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:  If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious.”  KJV http://www.bible.com (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com)

As sun and water help grow trees, bringing them to their planned displays of green, or golden red, or pink, so do the nutrients they receive from the planet Earth.  Nitrogen and minerals, for a couple of them.  But we can’t see it as we look at a tree from ground level, no matter how long we stare at the grass or the roots at the base of the tree.

This writer of this piece of scripture speaks of another nutrient that is unseen by human eyes, the milk of the Word of God.  It is appropriately very available for those of us who are new in understanding (digesting if you will) the meanings from the Bible.  This scripture could be interpreted that not only babes in the Lord, but all of us, should desire the simplicity of the milk of His Word.  We are to be as newborn babies.  Who among us enjoys a big glass of cold milk?  Many many.

Is it any surprise that babies and milk are mentioned here, as examples of the way we are to feed on the Word?  Those of us in the pro-life cause may readily see a correlation here between the importance not only of the Word, but of babies here used to describe a manner in which we should live.  We are to desire this liquid refreshment, this liquid-within-words that feeds our souls.  In this mention of milk, the most basic and beginning of foods, once again the importance of babies to our God is straightforward and cogent, distilled simply down to:  Milk. 

Lord, we pray that we will seek the purity of your Word as babies do milk.  Help us to swallow just enough of it at the right time to maintain our growth in You and to mature, just as babies become children and then adults.  Lord, we want this milk but also we want to grow because of it. 

Topics:  Pray to seek growth in our work for LIFE by gulping huge glasses daily of the milk of the Word.
