Spoon feeding in the long run teaches us nothing but the shape of the spoon (E. M. Forster, English novelist)

Remember how difficult it was to wean your baby from milk to more solid foods? It was often frustrating and messy, wasn’t it? Yet, it was a necessary step in the growth of your child. The same is true in learning for all of us. We need to move on from the simple, spoon-fed truths to the deeper challenges that will enable us to think clearly and develop greater wisdom.

Someone who lives on milk is still an infant and doesn’t know how to do what is right. Solid food is for those who are mature, who through training have the skill to recognize the difference between right and wrong. (Hebrews 5:13-15).
