Immaturity is the number one problem in marriage. Many times a simple solution to complex problems is to "grow up". Immature decisions and ways often get people in trouble.
God's will is for Christians to "Grow Up" Hebrews 6:1 "Therefore, leaving the discussion of the elementary principles of Christ, let us go on to perfection, not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God," God's desire is to grow and mature in Him.
What is Maturity? How do you know when you reach maturity?
Maturity has nothing to do with age, accomplishments, education or academic standing.
To be mature - attitude is what makes the difference. It has been said that character is what you are in the dark - when no one else is around. It is not important what man says about you, but what God says about you. Our attitude should be Christ-like and should be compared or measured alongside of God's Word - not others.
5 Marks of Maturity:
1. A mature person is positive under the pressures of life.
2. A mature person is sensitive to people.
They are concerned about the needs, cares and desires of others.
3. A mature person has mastered his mouth.
Self control comes from tongue control. Our words have the ability to build up or to tear down. To bring help and healing or harm and hurt.
4. Mature Christians are peacemakers, not trouble makers.
Peacemakers avoid arguing to get their point across, guard against hurt feelings or hurting others feelings. Peacemakers are not defensive, taking things personal, but seek the peace of others.
Selfishness is the first cause of conflict. God expects us to look beyond ourselves.
Judging others is the second cause of conflict. God alone sees and knows every circumstance. He alone is the judge.
5. A mature person is patient and prayerful.
This was a deep and powerful message that invites self examination. May we always strive to be mature in Christ and be a blessing to one another.

The message of the Lord's supper is one of SELF-EXAMINATION for the Christian. God doesn't want you to partake of the elements in the Lord's supper as if you are eating a normal meal. He wants you to me sober and praying to make sure everything is right between you and Him.
The main thing to remember is that this is a time for REMEMBRANCE .
1 Corinthians 11:23-26 (King James Version)
For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, that the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread:
And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.
After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, this cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.
For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till he come.
