Grow in understanding
Luke 2: 46-47
“After three days they found him in the temple courts, sitting among the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions. Everyone who heard him was amazed at his understanding and his answers.”
Everyone loves a child prodigy. They are cute. They are no threat. But when the child prodigy becomes an adult well that can be a whole different story. A child asking a provoking question is different to an adult asking the same.
At 12 years of age Jesus shows us what is of most importance.
He is with the teachers.
He is listening to them.
He is asking questions.
He is answering questions.
Jesus, at 12 years of age loves to learn.
May we never stop developing our understanding.
