Maturity is not the one with the most knowledge, but the one whose life has been changed the most by what they know. (Chris Suitt, pastor)
Maturity is not just a question of age. Some young people show more wisdom than some older adults. As Suitt notes, it’s not just a matter of gaining knowledge either. Knowledge can inflate one’s ego and doesn’t guarantee a wise use of what you know. Physical, emotional, and intellectual maturity are the result of learning and experience that effect significant growth.
Let us . . . become mature in our understanding (Hebrews 6:1). Those with knowledge grow stronger and stronger (Proverbs 24:5).
