Are there certain foods that you crave? Do you crave pizza, ice cream, donuts, potato chips, cake, French fries, cookies, or pie? Maybe for you it is a nice juicy steak or a certain type of sandwich. Wouldn’t it be nice if we craved broccoli, spinach, cauliflower, or kale – something that was good for us? Some of you have heard me share my love for Krispy Kreme donuts, and how I struggle because my cravings for them are strong!

In 1 Peter 2:2-3 it says, “Therefore, rid yourselves of malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander of every kind. Like newborn babies crave spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, no that you have tasted that the Lord is good.”

There is that word “crave.” Crave spiritual milk. Crave spiritual teaching, knowledge, and wisdom, so that we may mature in our relationship with Christ.

Now think back to our food cravings. Crave spiritual growth, knowledge, and maturity like we crave donuts, pizza, French fries, and pie. That is a strong desire and craving!

Once we start to study and grow in the word of God and strengthen our faith walk, we will desire and crave the spiritual teachings of God, now that you have tasted and seen that the Lord is good.

Together, let’s dive into the Word of God like we were diving into a scrumptious piece of cake – and crave spiritual maturity like we crave our favorite treat!
