Our journey to spiritual maturity

There is a journey that each of us must take to spiritual maturity concerning the things of God. Paul wrote, "When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things." I Cor. 13:11.

In Science and Health Mrs. Eddy points out aspects of spiritual immaturity in the second part of her Glossary definition of "children": "Sensual and mortal beliefs; counterfeits of creation, whose better originals are God's thoughts, not in embryo, but in maturity; material suppositions of life, substance, and intelligence, opposed to the Science of being." Science and Health, p. 583.
