Growing Up In A Small Town

And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men. (Luke 2:52)

  • Some of us grew up in a small town.
  • There was no famous people there, and no busy streets.
  • But we should be thankful for our quiet and uncomplicated upbringing.
  • The Lord Jesus also grew up in a small town: Nazareth.
  • A man named Nathanael asked, “Can anything good come out of Nazareth?” (John 1:46).
  • The Lord Jesus proved that the answer is yes.
  • Even though He grew up in an insignificant place, He was the most significant person in all of history.
  • Experience and Scriptures tell us what matters is not where we grow up but how we grow up.
  • Sometimes we feel insignificant compared to sophisticated people from prominent places.
  • But we are significant to God, and God can make us strong in spirit and filled us with His wisdom.
  • What we become is more important than where we are from.
