“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.“(1Cor. 13:11)
Everyone matures at different rates. A 40-year-old adult may act like a teenager, and conversely, a teenager may act like a 40-year-old adult. It all depends on your emotional state. What you have learned growing up and what you have been exposed to or adapted to, play a major part in your development and maturity. I was a child long after the age of a child. Even today, I am emotionally and spiritually immature in a lot of ways and sometimes feel as if I do not fit in.
