Grow Up as Jesus Did

Jesus was a child.  OK so I am stating the obvious, but he was.  He was a child who became a man and changed the lives of those he came into contact with and ultimately changed the destiny of every single one us.
And for him to do that, he had to be a child first.  Though he could have probably jumped past the difficult years and just arrived on earth as an adult, he set some things in place so that we could learn from them.  And this one scripture about his childhood years has always struck a cord with me.
Luke 2: 52 NIV
And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.

And the Amplified Bible adds some further clarification
And Jesus increased in wisdom (in broad and full understanding) and in stature and years, and in favour with God and man
From the 1st of July, I will be looking at what this means to us as parents, in how we raise our children to do great things in and for God.  You are welcome to join me as we discover more about how our children can Grow Up as Jesus Did.
