As my kids get older, I notice that they periodically show signs of the adult they will become. A quirky glance. A turn of phrase. Interactions with friends. Independence. They haven’t arrived yet, but I can better picture the young man/woman that will emerge from the more of adolescence.
I hope that others see glimpses in me as I mature in Christ.
As I walk with Christ and read His Word, my actions, words, and thoughts should more closely reflect adulthood. And, though I’ll never arrive this side of Heaven, I pray that I more and more represent the me that will emerge from this temporary life.
A new creation.
