Just Wondering…

I was just wondering, what do you think it means to be mature? It is not the same thing as being an adult. We can be mature and not be an adult or we can be an adult and not be very mature. Mature folks usually do not allow their emotions to rule their lives, only a three-year-old does that. Perhaps maturity is when we are able to face our stupid mistakes, admit them, ask for forgiveness, and then grow intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually. The one who saved us desires that we mature in our faith, but that can never happen if do not make the effort. Perhaps then, maturity comes with effort and our willingness to decide to suck it up and make the changes we need to in order to mature. Makes one wonder…
