“Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.” Luke 2:52
Jesus was a child once, just as you are! He grew up just as you will. What is important about this scripture verse is that we learn Jesus grew up in wisdom and in favor with God and man. It’s important for us, because to live a life filled with the blessings of God, we must follow this example.
How do we grow in wisdom like Jesus? The Bible tells us in the book of Proverbs (written by Solomon, the wisest man ever, after Jesus!) that wisdom is as precious as treasure that fills our life with rich gifts (Proverbs 24:4). We can acquire wisdom by chasing after Jesus and His words in our Bible. We can find wisdom in quiet places as we pray. Wisdom waits for us when we learn to respect God’s plan for our lives and live according to the Ten Commandments (Exodus 20).
God wants us to follow Jesus’ lead. While your body grows in stature, try to find ways to help your spirit grow in wisdom, dear one!
