Maturing As A Christian
Most women would agree that a man's age and level of maturity are not necessarily related to each other. During a stereotypical midlife crisis, men can become more like teenagers than adults! Age and maturity are very different realities and are not to be confused.
This leads to a simple, yet profound conclusion. Rate multiplied by time equals distance. That is, the distance we go as Christians-the level of spiritual growth we attain--is determined by the amount of time we devote to spiritual matters (the rate we travel) and the number of years we have been Christians. Some Christians crawl spiritually; others jog; still others run. It is not unusual to see younger Christians who run in their Christian experience, thus outpacing older Christians who crawl.
