4/24/2022: In natural life maturity is met as one becomes more independent.
In Christianity the relationship with Christ requires us to become more dependent (on Him). We are not to lean on our own understanding. We are to do everything in word and deed in the Name of Jesus. In fact, we are to get to the place of dependency that outside of Him we can do nothing.
What in the natural may appear as weakness results in great strength.
All the while we are to be mutually inter-dependent with brothers and sisters in Christ.
