Have you ever seen a baby cutting teeth? If not sometimes you may have seen the effects of them cutting teeth. You know, like parents that haven’t had any sleep, because they have been up all night just trying to ease the pain of cutting those teeth. The parents that for the day that the teeth are finally through so their child won’t hurt and they can get some sleep.
All this is necessary so that the child can start eating food and get off just the milk. So, the child can grow and start eating meat. If the child never cut teeth and never eat meat it would not grow strong.
Hebrews 5:12-14 the word tells us, ” by now you should be teachers, but you need someone to teach you again the first lessons if God’s message. You still need the teaching that is like milk. You are not ready for solid food. Anyone who lives on milk is still a baby and knows nothing about right teaching. But solid food is for those who are grown up. They have practiced in order to know the difference between good and evil” (New Century Translation)
You see Friend, it may hurt sometime to cut Spiritual teeth, but the process is necessary in order to grow up in the Lord and eat Spiritual meat and grow to maturity.
