1 Peter 2:2 Like newborn babies, long for the pure milk of the word, so that by it you may grow in respect to salvation. This baby reaching out for a Bible should be the normal behavior for a Christian. If we are not interested in reading the Bible we may need to re-think if we are Christians at all. Babies will cry and scream to get their milk. We may not cry and scream, but we should feel refreshed when we read, and deprivation when we don't.
