Are you maturing?

I was visiting with someone who I have not seen in several years. As we were interacting at a meal, I noticed how this person has not matured at all. In fact, it seemed they went backward.

1 Corinthians 13:11 says When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

There is a maturing process that happens in prayer. Sometimes the answer to some questions is doing something rather than receiving an immediate answer. Is this a no? We have to mature in the faith and in our character to handle gifts that come from our father. You wouldn’t give a 5-year-old something he can’t handle.

Well, God, our father does the same thing. We first have to show in our character and walk that we are mature enough and responsible enough to receive what God has for us.
