Is a seed less complete than a bud? Is a bud less complete than a flower? Is one flower better than another just because it has grown taller or bigger? These would be silly things to think about flowers, yet I often find myself believing these lies when I relate the concepts to human growth. Is a baby less complete than an adult? Am I less beautiful when I still have the capacity for growth???
Let us all strive to live in this moment and to grow into who God wants us to be because growth should never be viewed as bad; growth is room for IMPROVEMENT, not a sign of deficiency. For example, just because you need to grow in love does not mean that you lack love. It is only a sign that you are called to something higher and ultimately more fulfilling. LOVE where you are now so much that you are challenged to GROW.
