“When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.” – 1 Corinthians 13:11
Today’s words of inspiration were inspired by the Enkindle Evangelists’ skit, A Note To My Younger Self.
As we grow, we learn from our experiences, successes, and mistakes. The same applies to our spiritual journey. How many times have you reacted in a childish way to a situation? You know, posting your business on Facebook, Twitter, etc. The adult thing to do is to take up your problems with whoever you have a problem with. In fact, it is the Bible that tells us how to handle our problems as adults:
“Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.” – Matthew 18:15
We are supposed to learn and grow in our spiritual walk, otherwise, we remain children in the Word. Our theme this year is “ELEVATE”, which means going above and beyond where we were last year. Let’s make it an effort in 2014 to be wiser, put away childish things, and grow older in Christ.
