Luke 2:41-52

“Jesus grew in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and all the people.” v.52 (NLT)

It’s easy to forget that Jesus had a childhood just like us. That means he experienced some of the same childhood experiences that you and I experience. Even though he was God, He was still fully human and had to continually grow in the four areas mentioned in this verse. He grew in Wisdom (mental growth), Stature (physical growth), Favor with God (spiritual growth), Favor with all people (social growth).

This was a life long process for Him and should be for us! If you were to evaluate yourself in these four areas how are you growing? Maybe a better question is, Are you growing in each of these areas? I am talking about becoming healthier!! If you aren’t what is keeping you from growing in these areas? What are you going to start doing today in order to begin growing healthier and more like Christ?

    Wow! This is is really interesting; thanks Dan! I mean I knew that Jesus did have a childhood, but I never really thought about the fact that He faced things we face daily. Thanks for the insight!
