A mom beginning to schedule planned to awake at 6:30 a.m., but struggled to rise to her alarm. However, when her hungry baby cried at 5:45 a.m., without hesitation she went to feed him and enjoyed the earlier start to her morning.
There are two lessons in this situation. First, shouldn’t we be like those sweet infants who wake up early crying for their milk except that our cries would be for the sincere milk of the Word?
Second, while you wouldn’t ignore the cries of a hungry baby early in the morning, might you ignore the alarm clock going off to get you up for your time with the Lord? Might you decide you need a little more sleep, turn it off, and roll over?
What are you hungry for first thing in the morning? What does it take to get you up to spend time with Jesus?
Trusting in Jesus,
“As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk
of the word, that ye may grow thereby” (1 Peter 2:2).
