Ephesians 4:14 As a result, we are no longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, by craftiness in deceitful scheming;   Hebrews 5:12-14  In fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of God’s word all over again. You need milk, not solid food!  Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness. But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil. A little girl became restless as the preacher's sermon dragged on and on. Finally, she leaned over to her mother and whispered, "Mommy, if we give him the money now, will he let us go?"              Unknown   My Mother sent me this little joke.  I laughed and then I got to thinking. How often do I as adult rush through my Bible study, or my personal prayer time?  How often do I decide there is just not enough time?  How often do I set in class or in church and think about other things? What I will do for lunch or is that roast getting to done, will I have time this afternoon to finish my chores and watch that old show on Netflix.  As a child it is understandable why we get impatient.  However as adults we need to realize that time with God is very important.  Our Bible time and prayer time with Him gives us a chance to go from the milk as babes to steak for adults.  I have found that is I spend my personal time with God, I still get everything else done.  I feel better and sometimes I even have extra time.  My day does not always proceed without bumps and delays but I can handle them better. Since I realize this it makes me wonder why I ever let the personal time with God slide.  Just maybe I am giving in to the winds of the world when I do.
