Personal Time with Jesus - Day 12

Picturing Jesus

When Jesus’ parents had fulfilled all the requirements of the law of the Lord, they returned home to Nazareth in Galilee. There the child grew up healthy and strong. He was filled with wisdom, and God’s favor was on him. -Luke 2:39-40

Then he returned to Nazareth with them and was obedient to them. And his mother stored all these things in her heart. Jesus grew in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and all the people. -Luke 2:51-52

Even though I find myself often thinking of Christ in such high standards it is a good reminder when we read these words of how human and like us he really is. As Beth Moore puts it, "in today's terms, He was a man who could preach an anointed sermon, then change a flat tire on the way home from chruch."
