Luke 2:52 And Jesus kept increasing in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men. (Καὶ Ἰησοῦς προέκοπτεν ἐν τῇ σοφίᾳ καὶ ἡλικίᾳ καὶ χάριτι παρὰ θεῷ καὶ ἀνθρώποις.)

What an amazing thought to consider that Jesus—in the fullness of His humanness—grew in both wisdom & stature and in favor with both God & men.

The word "grew" (προέκοπτεν) is in a Greek verbal form that brings the action to the forefront. There is some emphasis in the way the author, Luke, chooses to portray the action.

Food for thought today. Your Savior had to grow in wisdom & stature just like you and I have to grow every day. Let's make today a special day where we grow with our eyes focused on Jesus (Heb 12:1-2).
