A crucial part of the Christian life is growth. In order to grow in our relationship with God, we much be weaned off from the habits or hiccups in our lives that deter us from following Him. Just as a child must be weaned from its mother’s breast milk in order to eat real food, God slowly weans us from certain things in our lives so that He can replace those things with what is better and more pleasing to Him. While it is okay for a time to feed on spiritual “milk”, at some point we have to grow up and start reading the Bible, praying and studying on our own so that we can in turn help others grow.
