What Maturity Means

Yay! My birthday is in 4 days. I've been asked how old I am in the past couple of days, and when I revealed, some expressed how they thought I was older while others exclaimed they thought I was younger.

I asked each party WHY they thought so. Most of them considered when I graduated from the university and others considered ALL the crazy things I do.

Well, we may think that maturity is about age and physical development, but that's wrong. Age is only a number! Found this article on a Christian WhatsApp group and thought to share.

20 Definitions Of Maturity


1. Maturity is when you accept other people the way they are and their level of maturity.

2. Maturity is when you understand that your ideas are not always the best.


3. Maturity is when you learn to let go even if it hurts.

4. Maturity is when you are able to drop expectations from a relationship and give for the sake of giving.

5. Maturity is when you understand whatever positive thing you do, you do is for your own peace.

6. Maturity is when you stop proving to the world how intelligent you are.

7. Maturity is when you stop comparing yourself with others because life is not a competition.

8. Maturity is when you understand that you can't and shouldn't always get what you want every time.

9. Maturity is when you are content and satisfied with your life and yet aspiring to be better everyday.

10. Maturity is when someone hurt you and you understand their attitude and stay clear than trying to hurt them back.

11. Maturity is when you start thinking of other people and not just yourself.

12. Maturity is when you know you cant please everyone.

13. Maturity is when you see things in different perspectives far beyond the way they are.

14. Maturity is when you love more and judge less.

15. Maturity is responsibility.

16. Maturity is Love.

Maturity is love? I am still trying to get this definition. Do you get it?

17. Maturity is the application of wisdom and knowledge in humility.

18. Maturity is when you accept that your accomplishment, failures, destiny, reputations and almost everything about your life depends on God's will and the choices you make and not pointing fingers on others.

19. Maturity is when someone hates you and you still pray for them to succeed.

20. Maturity is knowing God, serving Him with all that you've got and pursuing His Kingdom no matter what people think or say.

Maturity is knowing how much you don't know.

In my personal experiences, I’ve observed that age has little or nothing to do with maturity. I have met younger people who are mature well beyond their years, and I’ve known older people who act childish.

So what’s most important, to me, is what I know about HOW/WHAT GOD THINKS OF ME.

If God cares about my age, He wouldn't have blessed Abraham.

If God cares about my experience, He wouldn't have chosen David.

If God cares about my gender, He wouldn't have promoted Esther.

If God cares about my fluency in speech, He wouldn't have chosen Moses; a stammerer.

If God cares about my past, He wouldn't have called Paul.

If God cares about my physical appearance, He wouldn't have chosen Zacchaeus (the shortest one).

All I know is that since I was born up until now, my God never changes. He never made a promise He wouldn't keep. He is faithful like that!👍

P.s I'm traveling out of Lagos. It's going to be a long weekend.
