1 Corinthians 13:11-13Since our Father wants us to mature in the faith, weshould stop periodically and examine our lives to see if we're making progress in this area. Physical growth isfairly easy to evaluate--all you need is a tape measure.But how can you tell if you're growing spiritually? Let's begin by considering how children develop.Desires: Have you noticed that your childhood toys no longer interest you? The maturing processchanges our desires in the spiritual realm too. When we're growing, the world's pleasures lose their ap-peal, while our hunger for God and His Word increases. We are eager to be with Him and share with oth-ers how He's working in our lives.Understanding: When you were young, your perception of the world was very limited. In the sameway, we lack spiritual understanding when we're new believers. But in time, we begin to see life fromGod’s perspective. Trials and temptations become opportunities for growth, and service for the Lord be-comes an honor instead of a burden.Selflessness: The most obvious sign of a toddler's immaturity is his selfishness. He wants his way, andhe wants it now! Hopefully that is no longer characteristic of you. A mature believer is submissive to theLord, willing to wait, and more concerned about others than himself.How are you doing in these three areas of growth? Maybe it's time to let go of a few childish ways inorder to grow into a mature believer. The greatest evidence of maturity is love. When the Lord and otherpeople have first place in our hearts, it's then that we're most like Jesus.

Do you remember the shortstory “The Tell-Tale Heart” byEdgar Allan Poe? It ends withthese words: “… – no, no! Theyheard! – they suspected! – theyKNEW! – they were making amockery of my horror! … and now – again! – hark! louder! louder!louder! …‘Villains!’ I shrieked, ‘…I admit the deed! – tear up theplanks! here, here! – It is the beat-ing of his hideous heart!”I have a real story of a telltaleheart. His wife almost had to forcehim to come to the E.R. She saidhe was unusually irritable. Al-though he typically kidded withme, this evening the smile wasgone. He complained of a throb-bing abdominal discomfort thatspread into a tearing pain into hisback. On exam he had a pulsatingabdominal mass and upon listen-ing with the stethoscope I couldhear a repeating and prominentwhoosh. My patient had the tell-tale indications of a dissecting ab-dominal aortic aneurysm.The aorta is the largest bloodvessel that extends from the top of the heart and it provides oxy-genated blood to virtually everycell in the body. It is a multi-lay-ered, high-pressure hose thatarches upward and around send-ing tributaries to neck and brain,arms and then down through thechest past the diaphragm. Once itreaches the abdomen, the aortasends branches to bowels, kidneys,and finally splits to the twofemoral arteries providing bloodfor the legs.We measure the continuouspressure exerted within the aortain millimeters of mercury, and itspressures on average range from120 down to 80, but in a hyperten-sive person this can be muchhigher. After many years of suchpressure, and especially afteryears of smoking, the walls of thismighty vessel can weaken andblood can split into one of the lay-ers of the vessel, dissect down, andfinally rupture or blow out the ves-sel, causing immediate death.Some 14,000 Americans die fromthis condition each year and thatwould be less is proper screeningoccurred. My patient did not die,but he went to surgery and withinhours a new lining to his aorta wasprovided. Now, something like 10years later, he is still alive and jok-ing with me.I saw him last week, and listenedto the beating of his glorious, nothideous, heart.

While in Brookings for SDSUExtension Annual Conference lastweek, a little extra time allowedfor a quick stop at the new Mc-Crory Gardens Education and Vis-itor Center. Some readers mayhave had the opportunity to attendthe dedication and grand openingof the new facility on Thursday,July 26, 2012, and/or visited it onanother occasion, and could attestto how impressive it is.McCrory Gardens was estab-lished in 1966, only 2 years afterSouth Dakota State College be-came South Dakota State Univer-sity. The 25 acres of formal displayand evaluation gardens, whichmerge into the 45 acres of theSouth Dakota Arboretum andwoody plant evaluation plots wasnamed after and dedicated toSamuel McCrory, a longtime SouthDakota State faculty member.McCrory Gardens is highly val-ued as an active, living classroomand laboratory for SDSU, primaryand secondary school children andstudents from other colleges anduniversities in the region, and hasfar reaching benefits for the public.If you are going to be in Brookingsand have some flexibility in yourschedule, the gardens are wellworth whatever amount of timeyou have to visit.The story and informationabout McCrory Gardens is far tooextensive to cover here, but muchcan be learned by visiting the offi-cial website at:www.sdstate.edu/ps/mccrory/, orthe secondary website at: www.mc-crorygardens.com.
