I was having a discussion with someone recently and realized that I will be 28 this year. I think that is a very young age, however I think it is an appropriate age for growth. I realized that I am not into the things that I used to be into and I don't want to associate myself with people who are stuck in chapters that I have moved on or trying to move away from. I think it becomes challenging when you grow up with your close friends and are used to engaging in things that have been done in the past years (clubbing, strip clubs, being disfunctionally intoxicated etc). I am not perfect, and I don't expect perfection but I am at the age where I strive to eliminate distractions. I want people in my circle to help me grow and I expect the people around me to want the same for themselves.
When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 1 Corinthians 13:11.
What things are preventing your growth? Who is in your circle that is causing you to engage in wordly activities? What distractions are hurting your relationship? My goal is to be closer to Jesus! Pray for me and I will pray for you ❤️
