Rather it is to become the kind of person whose character imitates God. Granted, in order to work on this goal we must gain knowledge and do actions. mature in order to know the difference. Until some level of maturity is reached we are totally dependent upon the Holy Spirit to discern spiritual reality. Hebrews NKJV For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe.

Definition of maturity. Paul teaches us what maturity on a spiritual level is and is not. In 1Corinthians 13 he states the real love of God is patient, kind, does not envy or brag, or is full of vanity. It does not behave rudely, nor is selfish, nor is it easily provoked. Godly love never rejoices in sin but always does so regarding the truth.   This is the very foundation of emotional maturity, as it is for spiritual maturity. Yelling, loud talking, bursts of anger, and rudeness all show a lack of emotional intelligence (or, immaturity). Emotional immaturity is simply letting human nature run its own way without any control from a right thinking, reasoning mind.
