Luke 2.51 – August 14, 2020

Luke 2:51

Then he went down to Nazareth with them and was obedient to them. But his mother treasured all these things in her heart.  (Luke 2:51 , NIV)

“Mary treasured in her heart that Jesus was in his Father’s house and that he went back to Nazareth and was obedient. This has always reminded me as a parent to treasure my boy’s good choices and good behavior in my heart so on the days that maybe that wasn’t the case I could remember they were still growing in wisdom and stature.”

Thought Questions:

In what ways might it have been difficult for Jesus to be obedient to his parents? Do you think Jesus ever thought about doing something that might have gotten him placed in “timeout?”

In what ways are you intentional about begin obedient to your parents? To God?

If you are a parent, you have opportunity to nurture children to be obedient in some special ways. How have you attempted to do this?
