1 Corinthians 13:11

1Co 13:11
11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child; now that I have become a man, I am done with childish ways and have put them aside.

It almost seems out of place, but Paul continues the thought of letting go imperfections. The adult ought not to cling to their childish speech, thinking, and understanding.

While certain ways may have been beneficial to me in earlier points of my life, I must always be open to shedding off ways that don’t match the maturity that God is developing in me. This is most evident in my pet peeves.

Lord help me to develop into the mature, perfected man that you have destined me to be. Soften my heart to be corrected by You so no one else has to.
