Keep Learning And Growing
Therefore let us leave the elementary doctrine of Christ and go on to maturity.—Hebrews 6:1
Did you know that most adults in the United States read less than one book each year? This is nuts. Maybe this is a result of all the new methods we use to deliver information? Our fastpaced world is providing information in sound bites, visual simulation, and 280 characters—thus, we're not just reading books anymore. But this should not di1ninish our need for learning and growth; it should give way to it. The writer of Hebrews commands us to "go on" and move past the "elementary" teaching of the faith. It's a charge of spiritual motivation. It's not something that a teacher, parent, pastor, or political official can legislate. In other words, you've got to want it. And it's not intended to diminish the fundamentals but to take the elemental to the next level.
DO THIS: Go on and take one action to learn and grow in your faith today.
PRAY THIS: God, give me both the desire to grow and the opportunity for growth today. May I in the process get to know You and my fellow man better.
