True Maturity

Whittled Word for February 4, 2015

One indicator of spiritual/emotional maturity is that more satisfaction results from understanding than in being understood. It is telling that admiration of features, gifts, talents or performance merely indicates acknowledgement of them and not necessarily love for the person. It becomes apparent that when one loves or is loved dearly and deeply, features are less important than facets. Features are favorable or flawed; while facets express authentic character.
