It's also true that maturity is a divine gift. In our youth-obsessed culture which values excitement and freshness, we can forget the necessity and value of maturity, which offers perspective, poise, wisdom, discernment, patience, and more clarity about when to act and when to wait, when to speak and when to remain silent, what is our responsibility and what is not. Maturity makes us less reactive and less self-centered.
Neither childlikeness nor maturity need to be tied to age, but are gifts of the Spirit. Value and savor your maturity.
