When I was much younger, a woman I considered a mentor called me immature. I was hurt deeply. Not by being called immature, but by the finality of how it sounded—as if it was all I would ever be. I knew I was immature, and in many ways I still am. I am still becoming. We all are.

The enemy would love for that to bring us shame, but rather it should give us hope. God delights in our becoming. In scripture to be mature is to be perfect. To be perfect is to be finished and complete. In the Bible perfect is not an adjective, it is a verb. The perfecting process is not ours, but God’s work in us. It is a glorious work He began, and one He is faithful to finish. Our part is to seek Him and allow Him to. {Philippians 1:6}
