Accept your maturity

Anyone who is developing a deep love for God may appreciate the feelings of a young woman who was just discovering the spiritual goodness God has to give. She said, "So many of the things I used to enjoy don't appeal to me any longer. I don't know whether I'm becoming more spiritually-minded or just getting old!"

It's a point well worth considering. If we find ourselves losing interest in the things we used to enjoy, what is the implication? Are we just unthinkingly accepting the belief of getting old? Or is something fresh and vital happening in thought? Is learning of God and of man's relationship to Him becoming so meaningful in our daily affairs that we view everything we do in the light of our spiritual purpose?
