I've got big news for Larry!
If he opens that box at mid life, he's still going to have to box those childish things up again... and it won't be easier the next time!
Doesn't it seem to take a long time to move past those things that we should have put away long ago?
Just like Larry...
It's easy for me to hold on to a thought, an action or a habit that is complacently comfy, but not productive!
... instead of tossing the thing out, I am afraid that many times I've stuck it in that 'do not open until midlife' box.
Which brings me to a question, and I divert here, but what exactly is midlife?? Some say 40, some say the new midlife is now 60... Is it 50?
If so... it's for sure that my box of that 'stuff' is way past due for the dump!
Larry had a good idea, but his desire to put it off and do it later will only get in his way and keep him from the very best... God's best.
I've been boxing stuff up, and dumping it out all through the years, and yet it accumulates from time to time.
It was never God's plan for us to remain 'childish' until midlife, or beyond. "Put away" sounds like one of the things He expects us to do, which always brings me back to the word... 'obedience'.
