What does maturity mean to you? How do you distinguish a mature person versus an immature person? Young adults, how do you define maturity in yourself and in your peers? Does that differ? Parents of young adults, how do you define maturity? What is it that young adults do that make you say they’re mature/maturing?
Is it selflessness? The act of putting the feelings, wants, desires of those around us above our own?
Is it a focus on God? The lifestyle of one who is earnestly seeking the One who loves perfectly?
Is it the ability to recognize the fact that those around us are humans with thoughts, feelings, and dreams, like we are?
Is it being able to look at other people and understand their circumstances effect their behavior?
I want to hear what you think. Please leave a comment; let’s start a discussion!
