It means , when I was a child, I did as children do, but now that I'm a man I have a responsibility to do what is right in God's eyes. No more walking around blindly or care free.

Is this passage really all that complicated? Well, maby not so. Keeping the parabolic context in place, the content in and of itself is cautionary a "yield sign " if you will. There will always come the Godly revelation to progress from the dependence of fleshy provisions to dependence of spiritual enlightenment.

Its saying to me... 2 Me!!! We all are blind to who he is GOD His son Jesus Christ like children to Santa Claus... When I was blind to the truth I spoke as a child acted as a child and even thought as one... Now that I 'm born again and know who our Lord and Savior is I became a Man Put my sinful ways behind me... Alot of us grown folks are still children because we haven 't learned the basic instructions before we leave earth... We All Are GODS Children

When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.

There is time for everything, time to be a child bottle feeding, diapers and demanding all attention and when that is over, by the mercies of GOD grow up!

God expects us to mature and grow into what he wants us to. We have to purpose in our hearts that we are going to allow him to work through us. We have to stop being self willed and instead conform our wills to the Will of God.

Before i encounter Christ, my knowledge about him is limited. But now i am rooted him, there are something i was doing then that i cannot do now.

That we no longer need to be as babes on the sincere milk of the word but that we need to grow up and die to self and our way of thinking.
John Smith's comment on 2013-05-14 06:35:24:
This means when I was a babe in Christ It was obvious by my actions but now that I am a mature Christian and understand the word of God I act like it. My actions should show my maturity. This can fit both the natural person and the spiritual.
