Grow Up

God does not play games – children do. God does not invent games – children do (and some grown-ups – to make money). Paul writes of putting “away childish things” (1Co 11.11). An affluent influence pulls men to remain boys in time/money and spend both time/money on games and play. By contrast, God’s man, walking in step with the Eternal, has little time for man’s passing “time-killing-games.”

Children play at being older,

With clothing as a “prop.”

Some old folks try looking younger,

When they’re about “to drop.”

Be content, whate’er your age;

Don’t try to act another.

Maturity, if real, is good;

It doesn’t need a cover.

God does not ask you

does not require you, to give your life for any, A-N-Y worldly cause. Don’t allow family, “church family,” nor culture to tell you otherwise. Men want to control you, your money, and your body (i.e. life) for their “greatness” or the cause their imagination has stated is great. No party, no union, no church, no “liberation movement,” no hyped-up event nor strike/revolution is worthy of your life.

Refuse to die for any cause but the eternal cause of Jesus Christ.
