There is a canyon of difference between doing your best to glorify God and doing whatever it takes to glorify yourself. The quest for excellence is a mark of maturity. The quest for power is childish. • Max L. Lucado

Spiritual maturity is not reached by the passing of the years, but by obedience to the will of God. Some people mature into an understanding of God’s will more quickly than others because they obey more readily; they more readily sacrifice the life of nature to the will of God. • Oswald Chambers

Sufferings are to spiritual maturity as the chisel is to sculpture. • Author Unknown

Maturity is the stage where the whole life has been brought under the control of God. • Oswald Chambers

Never make a point at the expense of making a difference. • Andy Stanley
