“But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:”
How do you measure maturity? Is it by age or intelligence? Maturity can be measured by your ability to speak the truth with a coating of love. Many are hardly able to speak sincerely for the fear of rejection. We end up as actors unable to speak the truth about a relationship, job, difficulty, or weakness.
It is difficult to walk to the girl of your dreams, look her in the eyes, and say, “Girl, I don’t know how you feel about me, but I am hopelessly in love with you.” It is much easier to take her to an expensive restaurant than to speak the truth about your real feelings.
It takes maturity to look into the eyes of a loving Saviour and admit, “I am a sinner and scared of going to hell; save me!”
Most unbelievers display a macho exterior but shiver in the night when darkness falls, friends are gone, and the eyes begin to yield to sleep. Then they wonder, Is this a call to eternal sleep, or what?
Now, tell me, how matured are you?
Maturity is to become like Jesus. Without that quality, it will be difficult to speak the truth in love. There may be skeletons in the wardrobe . . . shhh! Your wife may hear what you did last weekend!
