In a recent Zits comic strip, a conversation between teenager Jeremy and his father went like this:
Jeremy: “Oh, great. We’re out of milk.”
Dad: “There’s still plenty of skim milk.”
Jeremy: “Oh. Okay…In that case, we’re just out of milk that tastes like milk.”
Dad: “Welcome to my world.”
We live in a world that is full of unsatisfactory substitutes for Jesus. Thank goodness we have the real thing!
“Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, now that you have tasted that the Lord is good.”—1 Peter 2:2-3.
