1 Corinthians 13:11 “When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things.”
Not everything is right in our culture, and this ‘Keep Calm’ poster this week is a prime example. Peter Pan may have been the boy that never grew up, but there is a price to pay for immaturity in society. This is neither Never Never Land nor Fantasyland. Instead of aging gracefully, the mantra today seems to be “never grow up/never grow old (i.e. Swift or Urban or anyone else) in this self/pleasure-seeking age. What do we deserve? I just see manifest problems in this theme of life. And sounds similar to the devil’s lie in Genesis 3:5that “You will be like God.” Society says to ‘grow up’ and mature into an adult contributing to society. God says to ‘grow up’ and mature into an adult contributing to the kingdom of heaven, but the world says “don’t listen to either of them; reject all that is old, stay a child, live for today and do whatever you want, whenever you want”.
