~ Spiritual Maturity vs. Emotional Maturity~


You can’t be spiritually mature and emotionally immature at the same time. The more spiritually mature you are, the less you are led by emotions. A spiritually mature person has control of their emotions, not allowing their emotions to control them. Part of your spiritual development is learning not to walk by sight/feelings, but walking by faith.

Some people can seem very mature spiritually until something happens that brings out strong emotions, then they fall apart. Your emotional and spiritual maturity cannot be on two different levels.

For instance: If your spiritual maturity is on a 7th grade level and your
emotional maturity is on a 3rd grade level… guess what, your spiritual maturity is also at 3rd grade. Your spirit man and your soul (mind, will, emotions) are eternally connected. You need your soul to feed and strengthen  your spirit, that is why the bible says to renew your mind. Lets try to make sure we are balanced in our growth.
