In a family it is always a red-letter day in the life of the youngest when the older children are able to exclaim delightedly, “Look, baby's feeding himself.”
A sister in Chagallu, Godavari District, India, was illiterate when she was saved, but learnt to read at the age of 50 so that she might be able to 'feed herself' with spiritual food from God's Word.
With so many Christians content to remain spoon-fed, that woman is an outstanding example of hunger for the Bread of life and determination to obtain it first-hand. Not only is she able to feed herself, but she is in a position to pass on much to others.
Hebrews 5:12-14 (GW): “By now you should be teachers. Instead, you still need someone to teach you the elementary truths of God’s word. You need milk, not solid food. All those who live on milk lack the experience to talk about what is right. They are still babies. However, solid food is for mature people, whose minds are trained by practice to know the difference between good and evil.”
“Put your nose into the Bible every day. It is your spiritual food. And then share it. Make a vow not to be a lukewarm Christian.” - Kirk Cameron.
