Growing upward, inward & outward

The Rabbi’s Dust 1. Jesus the Child: For God’s Sake Grow Up!

Growing older is meant to be about growing up, but that doesn’t happen automatically with age. That’s why a lot of grown-ups aren’t too grown up! Jesus demonstrated that maturity is about more than just age, but how do we measure it? What’s the metric of maturity? Luke 2:52 gives us some hints, as well as a glimpse of Jesus’s childhood, showing us what it really means to “grow up.”
