Growing Towards Maturity in Christ

Scripture gives us three universal symbols of spiritual growth. This resource is meant to help us see a pattern in Scripture and give us some direction to getting to the next stage in the faith and helping others move forward as well.

1. Milk/Bottle – Someone feeds us consistently
A child or infant in the faith

2. Spoon – We learn to feed ourselves with someone’s help from time to time
            A youth or young adult in the faith

3. Knife – we can consistently feed ourselves
A spiritual parent in the Faith
                        We feed ourselves
                        We begin to feed others
                        Those we have fed grow to the point where they are feeding others.
