TITLE: GOD as an ADULT

You are 18 years old and in the eyes of the law you are an adult or are you? You can drive, you
can live on your own, you can go to jail and you can be act as the world does in every adult way
imaginable. ADULT as defined in the Dictionary as a fully grown life form; a fully mature person, animal,
plant, or other form of life. Somebody who is a legal adult; somebody who has reached the age of legal
majority, generally 18 years of age in the United States.
What does it mean to be an adult in Godís eyes? We as Christians remember the story in Luke
when Jesus was obeying the Jewish Law in Jerusalem and chose to stay at the temple with the leaders of
the church to learn and share his God given wisdom, questions and knowledge with these teachers.
Mary and Joseph realized after traveling with the family that Jesus was not among the cousins and
family! He was still back in Jerusalem at the temple. As Jesus described it he was in HIS Fatherís House.
When Jesus was found by his parents he was asked why he was there and he then understood that he
needed to be obedient to his parents as he was not yet an adult. As he became an adult he grew in
wisdom and stature and he was in favor of God and men.
As we become adults in Gods eyes we need to keep Godís priorities straight to grow in wisdom
and stature. 1- We must seek spiritual wisdom and insight. 2 - We must pursue Godís will and purpose.
3 - We must have priority of our service and sacrifice in our relationships with others as God would.
So becoming an adult in Godís eyes does not have an age limitation as our world does. We
mature and grow as we choose with Godís help and guidance as we read HIS word and long for our
Father in all we do.

Some good tips on adult character; you gave this topic a lot of thought.

Take your thoughts here and reformat them into a solid article.

Sometimes it helps to write an outline, which enables one to see the overall thrust of the story.

Then you can see the beginning, the middle, and the ending. Keep writing and thinking! Thanks for your efforts here.

I thought about Jesus in the temple also when I was pondering this topic. Lots of good thoughts here! Keep writing!
