The Right Food

Mary was a new Christian. She decided she was going to read all of the Bible. Mary set a goal of reading five chapters every day.
Mary started reading the four books of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, which tell about Jesus’ life. It was easy reading. But then Mary began reading the Old Testament. She had problems understanding what she read.
Then her pastor explained that Christians need to eat the right kind of spiritual food. New Christians should start reading Bible books that are easier to understand. The pastor compared this to a baby. We wouldn’t give a baby a piece of apple to eat. Why not? Because the baby might choke on it. But it is okay to give a baby applesauce.
If you are a new Christian, talk with your pastor or a mature Christian in your church. Ask them to guide and help you in your Bible reading. Then you will grow and become a strong Christian.
