What Maturity Really Means

Listen to this powerful spoken word poem about what it means to let go of sin and learn to be mature.

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.
