What Maturity Really Means

When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. – 1 Corinthians 13:11

Listen to this powerful spoken word poem from Pastor Phillip K. Allen, Jr. of The Vine, a church in Porter Ranch, California. In it, this former Division One college basketball player talks about the games he used to play, before coming to God. And he’s not talking about basketball. Listen to this deeply personal and poetic confession of sin and godlessness. And the path to salvation.

If you enjoy this style of striking, spoken word poetry, check out this video from Jeff Bethke that went viral on YouTube.
