Are You An Adult? – for teens

At what age do you think a person becomes an adult? Is becoming an ‘adult’ based on your age or maturity? The word adulting is described as “behavior that is seen as responsible and grown-up”. Recently the phrase, “I’m not adulting today” or #notadulting has taken off on social media. This phrase can now be found on all types of merchandise including t-shirts, coffee cups, purses and fun socks. But what’s the big deal? Who cares if I “indulge my inner child?” What if I just want to have fun and manage a unicorn farm when I grow up?

Ok. Sorry to burst your Disney bubble, but there are no unicorns farms (unless you want to raise baby rhinos). Interestingly enough, the same individuals who want to avoid adulting also don’t want to be treated like babies. But you cannot live in both worlds! Being an adult, or adulting is a simple choice of making your responsibilities a priority and getting things done. No one becomes an adult when they turn 21! You become an adult when you take responsibility over your tasks and actions, no matter your age!

Luke 16:10-12 He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much. If therefore ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches? And if ye have not been faithful in that which is another man’s, who shall give you that which is your own?
