Put an End to Childish Ways
“When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child;” (I Corinthians 13:11a). These words of the Apostle Paul reflect human development; our actions, thoughts, and reasonings typically reflect our stage of life. Therefore, we’re not surprised when a child behaves childishly. Paul then says, “when I became an adult, I put an end to childish ways” (I Corinthians 13:11b). This is where things get complicated: Physical maturity and “adulthood” don’t always guarantee mature behavior. In this series we’ll examine what it means to put an end to childish ways in our faith. We’ll examine teachings from Jesus, the Apostle Paul, the author of Hebrews, and more to inform our thinking. Our goal is to move forward in our faith to find intimacy with God, and to be a light to our world.
