"When I was a child,
I spoke, thought, and
reasoned as a child.
But when I grew up,
I put away childish things."
1 Corinthians 13:11 (NLT)
"When I was a child I said inappropriate things,
because I didn't know better,
my thoughts were incomplete,
lacking common sense that comes from years of experience, and my reasoning's were always selfish.
I was the only one I thought or cared about.
But, when I grew up and became a more mature Christian,
I put myself aside.
I now strive to put others before myself,
think before I speak,
lest I tear someone down or lead them astray,
I ponder on God's word minute by minute,
allowing the Holy Spirit to complete my thoughts.
And I seek where and what Christ has for me to do,
looking outside of myself to please my Savior."
1 Corinthian 13:11 (My Interpretation)
