1 Corinthians 14:20 We Do Have to Grow Up

1 Corinthians 14:20 (KJV)
Brethren, be not children in understanding: howbeit in malice be ye children, but in understanding be men.

Children are wonderful. 

  • Their zeal for life 
  • Their simplicity of joy
  • Their love of family
  • Their innocence 
  • Their harmlessness 

We see our children and grandchildren and sometimes wish they could remain children forever. 

But that is unnatural and even unscriptural. The Word of God expects, even demands we all grow up, mature, and become productive workers. 

We never have to be angry or cynical, but we do have to grow up. 

To my readers:
First of all, thank you! It is a great joy to me to know you read the thoughts and lessons God has given me in His word. Secondly, I would love to hear from you. Please feel free to leave comments.
