A person may become an adult in the eyes of the law by reaching a certain age, but that doesn’t mean he or she is an adult in fact. We could make the case that adult-aged people who continue to act irresponsibly and immaturely are still children in many respects. We can see how that works out in a person’s emotions, financial management, employment, and social interaction, but do we see it also in the spiritual realm?

One thought on “Half-Cocked Spirituality”

  1. I really enjoyed your talk this morning on Prayer Surge Now. The Eagle Scout analogy worked very well with the Israelites experience. I asked my grandson if he experienced anything like this as he became an Eagle Scout. It led to a lively discussion. Shevua tov, Bev
