Maturity is the way we respond appropriately to a given situation or towards things. It does not justify the age. You cannot say that just because a person is older than you meaning that person is more matured than you. In fact now a days, we can see that those people are the ones who need to learn how to be matured. That’s why maturity is also a process. It’s not instant. There are stages that a person have to go through in order to be matured individual.
Maturity does not only show physically, mentally, emotionaly but also spiritually. In order for us to grow spiritually we need to train ourselves for righteousness. We need to stop staying on our comfort zone and to move forward. We need to long for spiritual milk and not just to solid food.
When we understand the Word of God and have a constant quiet time with Him and being able to relate or share the good news to other people, it helps us to train ourselves for righteousness. It helps us to stop being selfish and self-centered. And it stops us from loving the temporary things and the sinful world that we are living in now.
So if you are claiming that you already a matured individual. Make sure that it can see from how you behave and also your actions because if not, you are not only lying to yourself but also to other people and to God.
Matthew 6:33 “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness and all things will be given to you”
