GROW AS WE GO
Jesus Grows in Wisdom
"Wisdom is knowing what you know as well as what you don't know." (the Urban dictionary)
We will be learning about WISDOM this month at ANC Kids--finding out what you should do and doing it!!
In this week's Bible story, we learn about Jesus when he was a young boy. Even then, he wanted to spend time in the synagogue and learn all he could learn about the Bible. Read along to see how it played out...
Luke 2: 41-52: "Every year Jesus’ parents went to Jerusalem for the Passover festival. When Jesus was twelve years old, they went to the festival as usual. When the festival was over, they went home, but Jesus stayed in Jerusalem. His parents did not know about it. They traveled for a whole day thinking that Jesus was with them in the group. They began looking for him among their family and close friends, but they did not find him. So they went back to Jerusalem to look for him there. After three days they found him. Jesus was sitting in the Temple area with the religious teachers, listening and asking them questions. Everyone who heard him was amazed at his understanding and wise answers. When his parents saw him, they wondered how this was possible. And his mother said, “Son, why did you do this to us? Your father and I were very worried about you. We have been looking for you.” Jesus said to them, “Why did you have to look for me? You should have known that I must be where my Father’s work is.” But they did not understand the meaning of what he said to them. Jesus went with them to Nazareth and obeyed them. His mother was still thinking about all these things. As Jesus grew taller, he continued to grow in wisdom. God was pleased with him and so were the people who knew him."
Jesus wanted to be in his Father's house and learn all he could learn. He wanted to gain as much wisdom from the people in the synagogue and everyone was amazed at his wisdom.
BOTTOM LINE: Wisdom is worth searching for.
