"If you write FOR a particular market or FOR a particular editor you will often miss the mark. But if you write because your fingers have danced across the keyboard, because a character has tapped you on the shoulder, because a story has settled in your heart, then even if you never sell it you have done the work you were meant to do. And sometime, dear readers, real magic happens." Jane Yolen

He Grew - and So Should We

The Child continued to grow and become strong, increasing in wisdom; and the grace of God was upon Him. Luke 2:40, NASB

Some things about Jesus I am convinced I will never grasp this side of heaven (and maybe not even on the other side!). The verse above? Definitely one of them.

The Child in this verse is Jesus - the perfect, omnicient, all-powerful Son of God. Yet, He grew. He BECAME strong. He increased in wisdom. Sounds impossible. But He said it - so it's so.

One thing is clear, though. If Jesus could grow, then we certainly should.

I'm over at the Internet Cafe today, talking about just this. Won't you stop by and see how we also should Continue to Grow?
 
My heart is stirred by a noble theme as I recite my verses for the king; my tongue is the pen of a skillful writer. Psalm 45:1
