What Is Maturity? The Answer Captured In 20 Points

Many people think that maturity is about age and physical development but they are wrong. It is not because someone is 30 years old or because they are married with child that they are considered mature.

Age is only but a number. Maturity has to do with the development of the whole person and not just physical development. It captures a person’s physical, emotional, social, intellectual, ecstatic and spiritual development.

Maturity entails full development. It is therefore a journey for every person, with some people more mature than others.
