Continuing to Grow
The Upward Look

“The Child continued to grow and become strong, increasing in wisdom; and the grace of God was upon Him.” Luke 2:40 NASB
This Child born in a manger continued to grow physically, intellectually, and spiritually. He found favor in the eyes of God as God’s grace was evident in His life. Just as He continued to learn the truths of God, we too must strive to be life-long learners, seeking the wisdom found in the Bible and demonstrating God’s grace, mercy, and love in our lives. As we begin a new year, it is a great time to refocus our lives by seeking to grow daily in our walk with the Lord.
Lord Jesus, help me to learn from Your Word, the Bible, how I am to live my life each day. Let me grow in Your grace by sharing Your Word and love with others.
