1 Corinthians 13:11 ~ When I was a child, I spoke like a child, thought like a child, and reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up my childish ways.
I try to get into the habit of self-examination. Checking myself to make sure I am right before God. So when this scripture came to me today…I stopped to assess myself. What are my actions? How have I been behaving? Am I treating …the people around me respectfully? Have I done anything wrong?
Luckily I have a young son…so his actions many times can point out certain behaviors that he and I may be doing alike which speaks of this scripture.
Am I having tantrums and being difficult with someone? Acting like a know-it-all? Not listening or being overbearing in any situations? Talking mean to people…am I being aware of my tone? What am I hiding behind my back from people? Am I not being totally honest with anyone…because that is not a right way to be. Am I yelling at anyone or being confrontational? Being a tattle tale…or talking behind someone’s back…gossiping? Am I hitting my friends or others…with my words and or my hands? Am I not sharing or am I being selfish? Am I being a trouble maker?
I could probably go on and on…but you see where I’m going.
