Grow Up!
We are not meant to remain as children!

Many of us, people, grow older but never grow up. Some are stuck in perpetual spiritual infancy, remaining diapers and booties. The main reason is that, they never really intended to grow. Growing actually takes an intentional commitment. We must want to grow, decide to grow, make an effort to grow and persist in growing.  And for us to do that, we should stop thinking immature thoughts, which are self-centered and self-seeking. Babies by nature are completely selfish, right? They only think of themselves and their own needs. They are obviously incapable of giving; they only receive. Unfortunately, many of us never grow in that kind of thinking. While other people start thinking maturely, which focuses on others not merely of themselves. Because thinking about other people is the mark of maturity. (You love other people, you care about them, you easily forgive them and you are being considerable with regards of their actions.)

Nothing shapes our life more than the commitments we choose to make. Our commitments can develop us or can destroy us, but either way, they will define us. For all you guys know, we become what we are committed to. Like, "tell me what you are committed to, and I'll tell you what you will be in ten years." Other people make half-hearted commitments, which leads to frustration and mediocrity. While others make a full commitments to their goals, such as becoming wealthy or famous, and end up disappointed and bitter. We must know that there are external consequences on every decision we make, so we better choose wisely.

Friends, we should let go some old routines, develop some new habits and intentionally change the way we think.

"It is never too late to start growing."
