Bible Notes

Luke 2:51-52 (04.02.22)

Luke 2:51-52
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.

Do you ever feel like you don’t know enough to be a good Christian? You might be comforted to read this passage and discover that Jesus didn’t know everything either, nor was he born the finished article. His humanity included his brain and understanding, he too had to gradually learn and mature, and as he did so, he also had to build and deepen relationships with others. Truth is, maturing as a person and as a child of God is a constant process, we never reach the end of it, and not being complete in this sense does not make us any less in God’s eyes. This is all part of the rich experience of existence that God has given as his gift to us.

Thank you Father for the gift of learning and maturing – what is it that you next have for me to explore and develop?
