1 Corinthians 13:11-When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.
Despite popular belief age is not always the determining factor of maturity. I have met 8 year olds who conduct themselves more appropriatly and more responsibly than some 50 year olds that I have met. Many of us act like children until we meet the Lord; sometimes we continue to act like children though we've already met the Lord.
However, The Lord will will groom us into the men and women that He has called us to be if we take heed to his instructions. He will mold each of us to be men and woman who take responsibility for our actions and who learn from our past shortcomings.
As the sand in life's hourglass falls; we must reflect on what we have learned. Have we continued to make the same mistakes? Are there certain aspecets of our lives that we should have taken care of long ago? We must be honest with ourselves if we ever intend on growing. It comes a time when we have to put habits, addictions and strongholds that haunt our present in the past. So they will not be waiting for us in our future.
If God is trying to show you an area of your life that you need to get control of don't ignore him. Irresponsibility will not mask as ignorance if indeed you know the truth. Be responsible and grow up even if you are already a grown up!!!
