Prayerfully pondering on paper about kids and faith (copyright 2005-2014 Margie Hillenbrand)
I would interpret mature Christianity as one that immediately reflects Jesus. All decisions, all thoughts, all actions reflect Jesus.Was Jesus with the poor? A mature spirituality was with the poor.Did Jesus preach the kingdom of God? A mature spirituality preaches the kingdom of God?Whatever Jesus did would be a mature spirituality. How is that seen in kids? It is seen in kids when they have opportunities to love and preach in the same way that Jesus did.
