Growing Up in Giving sermon video. What I want to talk about today is what most say to be the number one universal immaturity issue found in Christ followers. What do you think that might be? That number one immaturity is financially giving to the kingdom of God. Let me ask you a question off the top. Will a mature Christian give financially the way the Bible says to give? Giving tithes, offerings, and alms is the number one immaturity of Christians.

We will begin a new series today that I am titling GROWING UP.
We see from these verses that there are maturity levels in the Kingdom of God. At what level do you think you might be? Are you a little child, young man, or father? You will have a good idea if you attend over the next few weeks.
Have you ever met someone who had Arrested Development Syndrome? Arrested Development Syndrome is a mental condition where a person’s mental development stops – arrests. Though the body continues to develop physically, aspects of a person’s mentality do not develop. For example, a person might be fifty years old, but act and think as they did at sixteen years old. Physical growth can also arrest, such as Emmanuel Lewis of the television program Webster and Gary Coleman of Different Strokes. Many, perhaps even most, Christ followers experience Arrested Development Syndrome in the spiritual dimension. We stop GROWING UP. (continue sermon notes)
