1 Peter 2:1-3
Therefore, laying aside all malice, all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and all evil speaking, 2 as newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby, 3 if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is gracious.
Just as babies desire milk, so they should desire the Word of God. This implies laying aside everything that is evil, deceitful and hypocritical in order to taste God’s graciousness personally. [The Bible Panorama.]
