Luke 2:49-52 NIV
49 ‘Why were you searching for me?’ he asked. ‘Didn’t you know I had to be in my Father’s house?’ 50 But they did not understand what he was saying to them.
51 Then he went down to Nazareth with them and was obedient to them. But his mother treasured all these things in her heart. 52 And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.
Just as Mary and Joseph had been searching for Jesus, so Jesus had been searching after his heavenly Father. in fact in thee brief few lines, we see how he devoted himself to both his earthly and heavenly parents, loving, respecting and obeying both. The consequence of this? Wisdom, stature and favour.
Father, I commit myself to search for you today, and to honour my parents and those you have placed me with.
