Putting away childish things
Posted On July 18, 2021
Putting away childish things is to value the spiritual over the flesh. Decisions that feed fleshly desires are childish and hasten evil; they must be put away and replaced with godly decisions that generate spiritual growth: that is spiritual maturity at work.
1Corinthians 13:11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
Proverbs 14:16 A wise man feareth, and departeth from evil: but the fool rageth, and is confident.
