When Joseph and Mary had done everything required by the Law of the Lord, they returned to Galilee to their own town of Nazareth. And the child grew and became strong; he was filled with wisdom, and the grace of God was on him.
I love little passages like this. Just the simple detail that Jesus was a child. He had to grow up from being a baby. I find myself wondering wether Jesus fell over and scraped his knee. Did he run to his mother for a hug? I hope so. Jesus grew, and wisdom and grace were his. This is our God, the child, the Servant King.
Thanksgiving Thank you Jesus for being a normal little boy. Amen.
