Maturing

Remember some of the ways our parents punished us for our misbehavior when we were children? You had to go to bed early. You were grounded and couldn’t leave the house. You couldn’t go to that party.

Go to bed early. Don’t leave the house. Don’t go to the party. I just realized that my childhood punishments have become my goals as an adult!

It is interesting to take note of how our priorities change as we grow up. Things that we thought were so important seem trivial now. Our goals have changed drastically. Our desires are much different than what they once were. It’s all part of the maturing process.

“When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.”—1 Corinthians 13:11.
