Learning from children is a fun adventure. I now have 3 kids under 3 years old. My fourth child has a good chance of sharing a birthday with one of her older siblings. As you can imagine, managing my household is a juggling act.
My 9 month-year-old was crying for some milk before bed. Here are some things that I have noticed as I tried to reduce the crying.
I stopped to think about how my eldest son (21 months) handles things differently
My eldest daughter (33 months) has been through both of those stages
Ask yourself this, “Where am I, when it comes to being a mature Christian?”
It is inevitable that all of my children will grow and understand what I mean by, “I am on my way downstairs to get you something to drink.” Is it also inevitable that you will fully understand what God says to you? Let’s overcome any of our areas of unbelief. Let’s embrace the fullness of how good God is. Let’s build ourselves up in faith and encourage each other so that there is no room for fear.
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.
So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.
And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes.
