Hebrews 6:1, NIV “Therefore let us move beyond the elementary teachings about Christ and be taken forward to maturity, not laying again the foundation of repentance from acts that lead to death, and of faith in God,”
James 1:2-4, NKJV “Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.”
James 3:2, NKJV “For we all stumble in many things. If anyone does not stumble in word, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle the whole body.”
A mature person expresses an attitude of dependence upon God.
A mature person is positive under pressure. First test of maturity is “how do you react to problems?” A mature person is sensitive to people. How do you treat others? A mature person has mastered his mouth. Self-control comes from tongue control. Your tongue is a powerful force for good or evil. A mature person is a peacemaker; not a troublemaker. A mature person is patient and prayerful.
