Childish Ways
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 childish ways behind me.
I CORINTHIANS 13:11 NIV

--------------------

One Sunday morning, a young family was scurrying to get ready for church. Tucking the shirttail into the trousers of her four-year-old son, the mother remarked, “Thomas, you look so sharp! You look like a young man!” She wanted to encourage him to leave his shirt neatly in place. Her son looked at her inquisitively and said, “Mom, I’m not a man, I’m just a kid.” He was right! The mother smiled as she immediately pulled out his shirttail!

As mothers, we desire that our children mature properly. Yet sometimes on their journey to adulthood, we do not allow them to be children. We expect them to be grown-up and leave childish ways behind. Adulthood will come soon enough. Do not try to rush the process by putting unrealistic demands on them. Learn to major on the majors and minor on the minors by seeking the Lord’s discernment. Ask the question, “Does this issue have eternal significance?” If the answer is no, allow your child to talk, think, and reason like a child. As an adult, they will be expected to put those childish ways behind them. Until then, leave the shirttail out!

Dear Lord,
I confess that sometimes I want my child to behave as an adult. Give me Your wisdom and discernment.
Amen.

Julie’s blog posts and devotionals are an extension of her journaling that begun after returning from a medical mission trip to Guyana, South America over 15 years ago. While “out of her comfort zone,” she heard the Lord speak very clearly. Upon returning, she yearned to discern His voice amidst the clamor of everyday life. Julie embarked upon a journey to listen and recorded spiritual insights gleaned from God’s Word in her journal. That journey continues today as she encourages and inspires others to listen and apply God’s truth.
