Example text

That’s all we know about Jesus’ puberty, his teenage years, everything that occurs until he begins his ministry at around 30 years of age. But this is an important verse because it describes how Jesus grew and matured—and how we can do the same. From this short passage, we see that Jesus grew in four areas of life. We see that he grew socially in his relationships with other people. We see that he grew spiritually in his relationship with God. We see that he grew physically. We’ll talk a little bit about some of those items, but we really want to focus on the fourth area of growth—wisdom.

In the same way, we can serve as God’s salt and light when we’re actively involved in the world. If you’re serious about growing in Christ and following his example, then you can’t seclude yourself from the world. Let go of any judgmental attitudes you have toward people who don’t follow God. Make an effort to really get to know such people, rather than instinctively pushing them away and closing yourself off from them. Try to understand where they’re coming from and why they believe as they do—even if you feel their beliefs are wrong.

THE SECLUDED CHRISTIAN A secluded Christian tries to avoid the world at all costs. He has very few, if any, non-Christian friends. He reads only Christian books and listens to only Christian music. He’s afraid of being influenced by the world, so he avoids it at all costs. The problem with this approach is that Christians are called to follow Christ’s example, and Jesus didn’t avoid the world at all. ”’ But wisdom is proved right by her actions” (Matthew 11:19). Secluded Christians (consciously or subconsciously) pass judgment on the people around them, and they deem non-Christians unworthy of their interaction and friendship.
