What Lessons Have You Learned as You Aged?

“When I was a child, I spoke and thought and reasoned like a child. But when I grew up, I put away childish things.” 1 Corinthians 13:11

We are all individuals with our backgrounds, experiences, and personalities. However, when we look at ourselves in the mirror, we should see the image of God. Reflecting the image of God means having a reverence for who we are as individuals. It means being humble and accepting that we are not perfect and that there is room for growth. It also means having a positive attitude and looking for the good in people and things.

I read a story of a young girl at the age of ten who attended a fundraising event with her parent. At the end of the event, she walked up to the person in charge of the event to ask her a question. She said, “Have you ever wished you could be like someone else? The woman answered, “Yes when I was younger, I am now glad and grateful for whom God intended me to be.” Next, the lady asked the young girl, “Have you ever wished you could be like someone else?” She replied, “I don’t know!

Job 12:12 says, “Wisdom is with the aged, and understanding in length of days.”

‘I don’t know’ means a lot at this age; it could be ‘Yes’ or ‘No,’ but mostly, it means yes, and you cannot blame them. In 1 Corinthians 13:11, Paul says that we no longer think and act like children when we become mature. Instead, we learn to think more like God, who is the perfect example of maturity. We can become more Christ-like as we learn to grow in our understanding and imitate Him more. As we mature, we also come to understand the image of God within us better. This image is what makes us unique and special creations, despite our flaws.

Maturity brings a greater sense of self-awareness and confidence in who we are because we know that we are reflections of our creator. This doesn’t mean that we stop being children in terms of our abilities – we can still learn and play and explore. But it does mean that we start taking on greater responsibilities, both mentally and spiritually. We become more aware of the world around us and our impact on it. We also develop a deeper understanding of God’s love for us and how we can share that love with others.

Prayer:
1. God, thank you for all the blessings.
2. In the name of Jesus, give me the strength to accept “I am who I am” in me.
3. In the name of Jesus, please give me the strength to face my fears and challenges when I feel like giving up.
