Put Away Childish Things...!

How often do we see Adults acting like children?
How often do we act like a child, in an adult situation?

  • Acting up - having temper tantrums
  • Quivering the bottom lip - sulking
  • Giving 'Tit for Tat'
  • Having a pity party
  • Creating cliques
  • Gossiping
  • Telling tales
  • Overall, not taking responsible for self.
'When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understand as a child, I thought as a chid; but when i become a man, I put away childish things' - 1 Corinthians 13:11.

What does it mean to be an adult?

We put away childish things.
We speak as an adult.
Temper tantrums?...No!
We understand, no one makes us angry or sulk,
We think about how we will reacting!

'Tit for Tat'.... really? No we won't
We aren't like any other person, 
so why imitate them by rendering 'evil for evil'
As an adult, 'we overcome evil with good'.
We are different, so why lower our behaviour to match that of others.

'No one understands me, if they only knew what i've been through'. 
No! We are not going there.
This is one party we need to avoid....The Pity Party.
Attending does not make anything better.

Adults - do you really need a small group of people that no one else can join....really?
Say No to cliques
Widen your circle of influence, there is a lot of people in the world. 
You'll be amazed at how many really, lovely people are out there, just like you.

Do not allow your ears to be an aural dumping ground.
Stay positive by listening to positive people, sharing positive experiences.
if somebody talks to you about someone, then they may talk about you too.

Are you telling tales? 
Tales are untruths, hurtful, exaggerated, stories, so why would you get involved?
Sometimes, they can be true stories but it's not your tale to tell.

Your take away is..........................Grow Up!
Take responsibility for yourself.
Put away childish things.
Act like an adult, in an adult situation.

I describe...........................You decide!
