Doing The Christian Walk With A Funky Strut

“When I grow up…”

on October 26, 2013

Read the following article today and it got a few brain cells firing.

Disclosure:  I am a single, never-married female with no children, 38 years old and counting.  And hoo-boy, could I come at you with some stories of the grief I get for that.  I’ve had my own grandmother and mother make bold comments to my face.  Which I’ve had smart-aleck responses for, but hey.

So.  The article says “the church” should come up with an alternative definition of adulthood.  Well, each of us IS the church at the end of the day, yeah?  So I’ve got a proposition:

 

Adulthood is the stage of life where you are regularly putting others’ interests ahead of your own, where you realize that life doesn’t revolve around you, and act accordingly.

Discuss.
