The world would have it that to become an adult means to be independent, to have a mind of your own and make your own decisions without counsel or help from another person.
So, just what is adulthood anyway?
Anna Sofia and Elizabeth Botkin define it this way: "The hallmarks of adulthood are not self-will or self-expression. They are self-denial and self-government." A true sign of adulthood is knowing your place and being willing to submit to your God given authorities, thereby submitting to God Himself. Being an adult is doing what is asked and required of you, without having to be coaxed or prompted.
The question is: How would you define Adulthood?
