The Measure of Our Maturity

Today we’re invoking a #ThrowbackThursday, by rebloging a post from Thursday, January 19, 2012, our first year of publication.

The tone and tenor of this post is in keeping with our current 2023 Theme, “Sowing Seeds for Spiritual Growth.” And its message is one for all time.

Sometime ago I read a devotional piece by the minister and writer Bill Crowder.  He told about going to the Hallmark store to get a birthday card and came across one that read, “You are only young once, but you can be immature forever!”

I suppose if you are a fan of Peter Pan there is something attractive about never growing up.  But hopefully most Christians know that perpetual immaturity is not only inappropriate, but unacceptable.  Paul encourages us to mature through these words to the Ephesians.
