When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.
~ 1 Corinthians 13: 11
If we want to win at faith and life, then our faith must grow from infancy to maturity. We must let go of childish thinking as we rely less on our understanding and rely more on God's truth and promises.
As we grow and mature as Christians, we should never dismiss the young Christian. Rather, exercise patience and help them mature with wisdom, mentoring, and coaching.
Success comes when we reach forward to learn from a teacher while reaching back to teach a new Christian. Who is teaching you? Who are you teaching?
