There is a time and a season for all things. As you develop, you will begin in one place, but by design mature, to another. The goal is to grow through a series of stages.
Like a baby, it is necessary that you are attached, in the beginning, to the milk, the nipple and the diaper. By design, this is momentary and eventually, the baby is weaned off.
It is important not to get stuck or to become enamored with one season, one stage or one place in life. Understand MY processes, everything is cyclical and another season is coming.
The wanting and the weaning are opposing forces, that lead to the MY predetermined end. The need for milk leads to self feeding and self sufficiency. The nipple leads to self soothing and self resilience. Lastly, the diaper leads to self control and ultimately self discipline.
About this we have much to say, and it is hard to explain, since you have become dull of hearing. For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the basic principles of the oracles of God. You need milk, not solid food, for everyone who lives on milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, since he is a child. But solid food is for the mature, for those who have their powers of discernment trained by constant practice to distinguish good from evil.
