Spiritual maturity...what does it look like to you? Tell me in the comments about a person in your life, something they do, that you admire and see as spiritual maturity!
There's comes a point in a person's life when they have the potential (if they are willing) to become "spiritually mature." When, they stop acting out of fear: fear of not getting all they think they deserve, fear of getting a different blessing or deal than someone else, fear of losing, fear of justice not being served how and when they want it, fear of what others think, etc.
At some point, spiritual maturity turns the once entitled soul into a humble, grateful, selfless soul; a soul willing to see the wisdom in what they have and who becomes willing to put others first. A soul who will sacrifice to preserve others over themselves. A soul who no longer competes in what they receive and do, but submits to God's will. A soul who stops counting what they have and seek to give all they have, all they can, to others and to God.
Judah (as I said yesterday) walks the walk. He made a promise to his father Israel that he would be surety for Benjamin and his brothers, and he does so in beautiful fashion...fearing not what Pharaoh's great right hand man can do, but fearing only for his father, brothers, and their welfare. Again, though he does not become the birthright son, or prophet, he becomes the father of the line of Kings (the political bloodline) of Israel. What a guy!
