    are you a BABE to the ways of the world
    ...the struggles and burdens of others
    do you ignore injustice to your neighbor
    ...your brutha

    are you being spoon-fed baby food
    ...or the steak and potatoes
    of REALness

    can you get with this...this
    saving grace of righteousness

    are you YOUNG to the TRUTH
    of what my FATHER can do
    for you
    for me
    for others before you

    have you put HIM to the test
    put the best of your faith in HIM
    ...then rest.

    has HE responded to you?

    are you WISE in your cries
    for help from THIS ONE
    has your NEW LIFE begun

    are you SATISFIED and FULL
    of the things you've dreamt of
    ...will you keep looking above

    'til HIS work is done

    will you?

    are you a babe to the ways of this world?

    are you?

    On table food!

    Feeling you on this...
    to avoid our spiritual selves is to easy to resist.
    So we rather speak of carnal things and forget
    from whence came our heavenly gifts!
    Loved this...
    BLESSINGS ON YA HOUSE!

    I don't believe..
    there is ever a time to cease learning,
    teaching, receiving or giving
    spiritual awareness, we all are
    born with a soul...
    we will always hunger for that
    void to be filled....
    some will find their way....in time
    some will not...
    its a matter of opening ourselves
    to the sustenance and maturing in our faith..to believe

    enjoyed this piece...Baller

    Yes, I am. In some areas, I am still nursing on "milk" but I'm working toward the "meat" of his Word.

    Hebrews 5: 12
    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.

    1Cor.3

    [1] And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ.
    [2] I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able.
    [3] For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men?
