STOP AND THINK – Age does not depend upon years, but upon temperament and health. Some men are born old, and some never grow up. (Tryon Edwards, 19th century theologian and publisher)

Have you ever seen a young adult who thinks and acts like a much older person? You wonder if he even had a childhood. Or, maybe you’ve known people who’ve never matured, as if they just don’t want to grow up. In either case, we grieve that they are not experiencing life as God intended. The key may be to stay young at heart as you age.

Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything (James 1:4).
