Immaturity - A Trojan Horse
Immaturity - A Trojan Horse | Part 1

It may be hard to believe but we actually do not know everything! Humility is so important in seeing where we truly are in our growth. Immaturity can keep us from stepping into a greater understanding, a greater reasoning and a greater relationship with Jesus.

No one likes changing a dirty diaper, but babies can’t clean up their own messes. They need a grown-up to clean them and then train them for a time. Immaturity is ok for a season, but we can’t allow it to continue in our lives as if we are adults walking around with diapers on. We have to put things we did as a child away to fully mature. It’s time for us to grow up and stop causing a stink!

While we may not have our fingers in our ears, there are things that we may have experienced, or are experiencing, that keep us from hearing clearly. Our hurts, history and hang ups can keep us from growing up! God is always talking and revealing things to us, we need only to clear the noise of all the distractions to hear and apply all that He is saying to us.

True understanding comes with maturity. It's not a given for a child. It takes years before a child can hear and actually understand why they should not put that piece of metal in the electric outlet or put random objects in their mouth. And while as adults we are likely not doing any of those things, we may still not be mature enough to understand what God is saying in His Word and through other people.

Maturity takes a lot of work, a lot of learning and a lot of support! The Bible calls for the mature in the faith to act as spiritual parents to the immature in the faith; not to be overbearing know-it-alls but to lovingly guide and teach the Word of God. This takes patience and grace, but also takes the fortitude to stand up for what is right and call out the dangers that could harm others.

A balanced diet is just as important in spiritual development and growth as it is in the natural! Each part of the diet is important for certain parts of development, so one neither replaces nor stands more important than the other. And just as we go through different phases of what and in what form we can eat things dependent on our age, so it is in our spiritual maturity. So, what are you eating?
