If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.           1 Peter 4:11

PUT AWAY CHILDISH THINGS.
 
Sometimes we find that adults are really just bigger children and they have not yet really fully accomplished the goal of putting away childish things.

It is natural for us to think: "What I am going to get from God?" From God's point of view, we must sometimes appear as little children squabbling over a few toys, and we need to learn patience from his example for he really is very patient with us.
Jesus tells us that we should "do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again ... and you shall be the children of the highest; for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil. Be therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful."

It is not natural for us to lend to people who do not pay it back, to be kind to people who will not say "thank you", or be merciful to people who do not show us mercy.

As children, we may feel justified in treating others as they treat us, but as adults in Christ, we need to treat others not as they treat us, but as we wish that they would treat us. This is really putting away "childish things".
