THE REASON WHY YOU HAVE REMAINED LIKE THIS
If you are on the research of meeting someone who was breastfed for complete "Three years," here's me. (It could be the reason I'm brilliant, sharp, multitalented, and... lol).
In those sucking days, whenever my mum -a retired teacher-came back from School, I would have her sitted then the sucking adventure would begin. After three years, She got tired of it and she wanted me stop. She was taught to use bitter leaf: she was to squeeze the water out of it and applied it on the breast. When I tasted it, it was so bitter but I wouldn't give up. I ran to get some water and cried myself into making her wash the breast, then I continued.
She knew that won't work so she sought for a lasting solution. She opened the breast one day and I saw something covering the two nipples. She told me she had wounds on them, and I should let them heal before I would continue. So I let it be! What I saw actually was fowl's fur dipped inside a black substance, which was applied to it. What deception!
As a boy who loved and still loves his mum, I agreed to "let the sagging breast lie" and till today, I'm still praying for the imaginary wound to heal so I would continue to suck. Smiles.
(If you doubt it, ask for her number from me)
Like it took my mum three years to get me weaned, it's taking more than enough time for some people to allow themselves being weaned of God. They would think their spiritual statusquo is the best they could ever attain, whereas God wants a bigger plan for them.
Since they don't want something more, God had continue giving them the desired milk.
Let's hear 1Corinth3:2:
I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto you were not able to bear it, neither yet now are you able.
And this? "For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe." (Hebrews 5:12-13).
But "As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:" (1 Peter 2:2).
Milk is for babies and meat for grown-ups.
With this your round-the-clock spiritual age, would you say You a baby or a grown-up?
Have a glorious week ahead...
