Re:Verse reading–Luke 2:39-52 (Day one)
“And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.”–v 52.
It is our secret weapon! We humans can grow. Change. Adapt. Learn.
The childhood of Christ sets the pattern. Like us, the Lord grew. Many simultaneous areas of life. Intellectually. Physically. Spiritually. Socially. Nothing about the Lord was “perfect” if you mean a static condition that makes growth and progress unnecessary.
Becomes harder in adulthood. More excuses accepted. But the need for growth never goes away.
The story is told of the mountaineer who spoke one day to Mt. Everest ( before it had been conquered in the modern era) “You have defeated us once. You have defeated us twice, three times. But someday we will defeat you. You cannot grow any taller, but we can.”
What persistent problem/challenge of your life could be conquered if you learned/changed? It will likely stay the same, but you can grow!
