Do you remember the kids in school that had to attend the other class. Some of the kids were mean and picked on them. They called them slow, retarded( academically delayed), dumb even. Those kids weren’t dumb or even slow; they just learned differently. It took specialized training to help the kids move forward and grasp the actual material.
Well I am sure you have read the title, and maybe have an idea where I am going with this. I would like for you to examine yourselves. How well do handle things that make you angry or things that make you uncomfortable. I was having a conversation with my eldest daughter, we were talking about how some of her friends do not act their age. I smiled and told her that my friends don’t act their age either. Do you believe that you are acting your age when having to address issues that require maturity to address?
This is a little something to make you smile even though our topic is quite serious..we all need a little laughter:)
I want to also share some scripture with you. These scriptures reflect the seriousness of growing up SPIRITUALLY. Always keep in mind that these scriptures are written to warn, encourage, advise, and hopefully motivate you.
[That is] because the mind of the flesh [with its carnal thoughts and purposes] is hostile to God, for it does not submit itself to God’s Law; indeed it cannot …So then those who are living the life of the flesh [catering to the appetites and impulses of their carnal nature] cannot please or satisfy God, or be acceptable to Him.
So if you have found yourself to be stagnant in the area of Spiritual Maturity. Here are some pointers to help:
- Always have an accountability person-someone who will be honest to you
- Pray often and meditate on scriptures concerning the areas where improvement is needed
- Be honest with yourself and others. He who hides his sin does not prosper or progress
- Forgive yourself and ask forgiveness daily
