When I Was A Child...

"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." I Corinthians 13:11

Recently, my husband was speaking with my father and said to him, "I want to apologize for not originally asking for your daughter's hand in marriage."   My father was surprised, and this began a deeper conversation between the two.

As my father relayed the conversation to me, I recalled that period in my life.  I even remember my grandmother meeting my then fiance and saying, "I approve.  I give my blessing for this marriage."  I looked at her strangely and said, "Ok." because we were already engaged.  I wondered to myself, "Why did she think I needed her approval or blessing?"  I think upon this perspective now in shame.

This is the sort of ignorant blindness many young adults walk in.  Having perhaps been under the tutelage of a parent for most of your life, you begin to equate maturity (being fully developed) with self-reliance (depending on yourself alone for everything).  To such persons, doing things your way becomes your proof that you are are grown...and nothing could be further from the truth.

Such is the attitude of a child - no matter the age of the person - and it is rampant in the church. People are running around as renegades trying to "prove" that they know the Lord by going rogue. "They don't need anyone but Jesus." they claim, except it is clear by that attitude that they do not yet have Him. While they wear their independence as a badge of honor, all it does is make obvious that they have yet to know the ways of the Lord.
