"And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man." - Luke 2:52

There are very few moments in the year that are fitting for a time of reflection
like the weekend of Thanksgiving. You have eaten your heart's desire; you are looking ahead only to realize that there are just about 30 days left in the year." 

What do most folks reflect on at this time of year? One word - Growth.

Whether it is:

  • Physical Growth (assets, real estate, stock portfolio, etc)
  • Mental Growth or
  • Spiritual growth
...... enjoy your time of reflection.

I would like to add one other dimension of growth for us to reflect upon - "Wisdom, Stature and Favor."

We don't have to look far to discover the secret to this dimension of growth. Jesus, himself, made it very clear in Luke 2:49:

"I must be about my father's Business"

Stated differently, did our perspective on the progression of God's wisdom cause us to gain more wisdom, stature, and favor this past year?

I will put in more effort into my personal growth, concentrating on my spiritual and mental well-being, all the while upholding Christian core values. Through the cultivation of these values and disciplines, I believe that all other desires and blessings will be drawn to me.
