Just like God created a peach tree to make peaches, He created you to be you. He gives you instructions in the Bible on how to be your best you. He wants you to be just peachy!
Being mature has taken on a negative slant. We see T-shirts that warn, I can’t adult today, or Don’t grow up, it is a trap. But remaining like a child has its disadvantages too. The Apostle Paul tells us to leave childish ways behind. We may accept faith in a child-like way, but to be our best selves requires maturity. Begin by cultivating the “Fruit of the Spirit” as described in Galatians.
With God it is not just about getting older, it is about making mature choices that include loving others. This creates a life full of joy and peace; there is no room for drama, despair or loneliness.
We can be fruitful because God is faithful. Be just peachy!
Galatians 5:22, The Message: “But what happens when we live God’s way? He brings gifts into our lives, much the same way that fruit appears in an orchard—things like affection for others, exuberance about life, serenity. We develop a willingness to stick with things, a sense of compassion in the heart, and a conviction that a basic holiness permeates things and people. We find ourselves involved in loyal commitments, not needing to force our way in life, able to marshal and direct our energies wisely.”
