The rising tide of our own expectations leads us into disappointment, especially when relying only on what we heard and how it was interpreted as a child. Luke 18:21 A few years ago a lawyer in his fifties told me he had made a decision at nine years old that he didn't believe that Christ was who he said he was. His life has been modeled on that choice at that age without ever again seriously looking into it. Luke 18:22-23 

We're to no longer think as a child as we live as one. 1 Corinthians 14:20
