#4633 – Becoming Mature

Good morning people who make choices that affects other people’s lives

Hebrews 11:24-26 NIV By faith Moses, when he had grown up, refused to be known as the son of Pharaoh’s daughter. He chose to be mistreated along with the people of God rather than to enjoy the fleeting pleasures of sin. He regarded disgrace for the sake of Christ as of greater value than the treasures of Egypt, because he was looking ahead to his reward.

There comes a time when we all need to make a choice which path we will take. This is part of growing up and becoming mature.

The formative part of our lives is largely based on what our parents choose. We go along with them where they go, and we often believe what they believe because we have not yet developed the sense of making our own informed decisions.

This is not bad; this is a part of life.

But somewhere along the line, we step out from being under their covering to the place of standing before God based on the decisions that we personally make.

At this time, what do we choose?

Moses, chose wisely, and the result did not only affect him, but it affected an entire nation.

Never under-estimate the influence of your life and the power of your choices.

Being mature brings with it a greater sense of responsibility. This is good news. This is powerful news. This is life-changing news.
