God wants us to grow...In everything, we are not meant to remain as children. To grow up, it must start with a decision. Sometimes the decision requires difficult or painful choices. We must decide to leave behind those things that would keep us from growing up. Now at 65 looking back, the choices I made at a 18 has consequence on my life today. Do you spend most of your time piling up possessions. Or striving to develop Christ like character? Can you be certain that the Holy Spirit will Help you with these changes? Will Praying make me change?

hello, It always depends on the person if he will gonna grow up or not. It is his choice and we should accept it or not that's people. I know that someday people will look for something new about his self and that is being mature enough. Did you hear the proverb "Improvement start with "I" " Something like that. If you really want to develop yourself you must accept first the way you are. with action and prayer of course we will succeed.

Know matter were you're are or what you done, were you from. It not to late to change you life. Yes! It better when you are young to grow up, and realize the choice is your, because at old age it hard to accept changes. When they look back At that age most of there life going. But with Christ all things are possible to all who put there trust in Jesus Christ.

Everybody does make choices and I guess these lead us to what happens to us in the future, all we can do is live from way to the next and try and make the right choices.

Yes! Everybody make choices, and that will tell there future. No one know when the end come . So I lives for the day here on this earth with much joy in the Lord. Sometimes people thinks following Jesus our Heavenly Father's Commandments put limits on how they are able to lives their lives. In reality keeping the Commandment gives us more freedom in life while waiting for our Heavenly Father.

If we have the guidance of God in our lives, we will definitely grow in all aspects in life, it's not only talking about mentally or physically growth but most of all our Spiritual life will even more be brighter when God is in the midst of it. That would be the greatest growth that a person can make best in life when it's done with God's help.

I try to follow God's rules the best I can. Like you, in my teens I made so many mistakes and in my 20's and 30's to. I wish I could take everything back because if I could, maybe I wouldnt be sick everyday like I am now. Some people never grow up. Like my brother. He is 39 and still acts like a teenager. I am certain the holy spirit is helping me. But prayer does not change a person, it just helps you to be closer with God.

We all have to grow up eventually and make very adult decisions. Remember though, not all adults are responsible, there are some adults who are way into their mids who still have no sense of responsibility. I was on the train a few months before and I saw a whole group of people screaming and laughing on the train causing such a racket. At first, I expected them to be very rebel and noisy teenagers. But when I got off the train I was shocked to see a group of adults pushing their prams with the kids in them! What kind of adult with kids too! acts like that on public transport? I have friends who are in their late teens in their senior year of high school and they still think like kids. They're not very mature and think that the world is simple and will go their way which of course is not true. People really need to mature at the right age as people will start judging you. Praying is a good start as I do too but what's the point of praying when you're not doing it? God needs your help too in order for you to change.

You are absolutely right some people never grow up. But I think its that everday life that makes a person evolve. Sure prayer is always important..we need prayers to get us and keep us on the right track,, God is with us at all times at any age...as we live hopeful we learn the right from wrong way of life,,,we don't always do the right but you can believe we all have the choice. some people don't do better in life because they don't know better,and some are just trifling and have no intentions of doing the right thing. Yes prayer will change lives.. I do believe that...

Everything happens for a reason. Growing up has positive and negative consequences. What is recommended? A man that is a perfect lover and do not have a single skill or a not grown up man who has every skill you look for? Can there be success with both man and woman religious and does not have skill? In what way? It boils down to necessity and necessity is the reason growing up is better left in the backseat. Correct me if I'm wrong.
