All it takes, is maturity

It takes maturity too...
be happy for someone who has exactly what you want but can´t get.
to be rich and not feel the need to throw it in every one´s face
to have conflict with someone but still cover their sin against you
to be innocent and yet say sorry in the effort to reconcile
to be a parent and admit to your child you were wrong
to be a christian and know that you are saved by grace and not keeping the law
to study, even if you feel like there are more interesting things to do
to be in pain and yet encourage another person with a less problem who is confinding in you
to be heart broken and yet not give up on love
to be a white and not always ignore the good in other races and expose all their mistakes
to be a wife and not be threatened by the notion of submissiveness
to be a man and not run away from a situation even if all the nerves in your system are screaming that is the only way out
to be a teacher and accept, a student knows something more than you
to be poor and not admire
to be a teenager yet know you don´t have to do things that you know will destroy your life, just to fit in, be cool and get friends
to be in love, and think with your head
to be a sinner and not try to rationalise and justify all your perverted behaviour
to be humble, and not have to be proud of the fact that you are humble
to be a woman, and know that your strength is not in forcing your way, but being gentle
to want something, and yet not buy it because you know you have enough or dont need it
to forgive, without waiting for a sorry
to talk, considering the fact that your words have greater power than your actions will ever do
to listen patiently even if you have heard it over and over again
to act, not according to how you feel but to what you know is right
to complement someone genuinely, who you dont want to be better than you
to accomplish something, and admit, it was not all by your own efforts
to know you wont get poor, just because you gave
to believe, in more than you can see
it takes maturity, spiritual maturity, to be the person God created you to be.
