Ephesians 4:15   Thought/Prayer:  Toughen Up?  Topics:  2 at end.

“But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: . .” KJV (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com

This scripture is speaking of how Christians, as members of the body of Christ, grow up “into him.”  The closer we become to Jesus Christ, the more we grow into Him, becoming more and more like him as we grow.  We begin as baby Christians and then hopefully will mature into stronger and stronger persons in His will.

But sometimes we are admonished to “toughen up” about something, some problem, some emotion, some concern.  And we know that babies and children are not “tough,” in the sense that they have, in normal childhoods, not had to face situations that require them to deal with things that are beyond childhood’s parameters.

But do we maybe, as we grow into adulthood, toughen up?  Look back at your elementary school days.  You were, in most families hopefully, allowed to be a kid, enjoying life, jumping and skipping if your good day warranted a jump or skip.  And, even in pre-teen and teen years, there may have been a lot of latitude for just “being,” without having to deal with overwhelming odds of a catastrophe or such.  However, we do know that children are sometimes asked to grow up too fast, as we say, and maybe they do become tougher, as they deal with problems way too large.  Life is sometimes difficult for young people. 

But as Christian adults, have we gotten tough?  Are we like shoe-leather beef in someone’s sandwich?  As we, as adults, face great (and sometimes seemingly greater and greater) challenges, do we harden and become less pliable in the hands of our Father?  It is easy to do so.

Lord, we do not want to be stringy, tough old leather.  As we grow in You, help us to mature without becoming jaded or as unfeeling as a piece of hide.  Help us to grow up into You beautifully, and help us maintain a mature beauty as we represent You in our fight against the unlawful taking of human life right out of the womb.


Topics:  Pray for maturity in the Lord, without harsh and inflexible attitudes and habits.
