My soul is even as a weaned child

“Surely I have behaved and quieted myself, as a child that is weaned of his mother: my soul is even as a weaned child.” ~Psalm 131:2

“He had become as subdued and content as a child whose weaning is fully accomplished…. At last there must be an end to the suckling period, and then a battle begins: the child is denied his comfort, and therefore frets and worries, flies into pets or sinks into sulks. It is facing its first great sorrow, and it is in sore distress…

Blessed are those afflictions which subdue our affections, which wean us from self sufficiency, which educate us into Christian manliness, which teach us to love God, not merely when he comforts us, but even when he tries us.” ~ C.H. Spurgeon, Treasury of David
