intolerably “Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.” Luke 2:52. Jesus grew up in a small town: Nazareth. A man named Nathanael asked, “Can anything good come out of Nazareth? 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. Scripture confirms that what matters is not where you grow up but how you grow up. Sometimes we feel insignificant compared to sophisticated people from prominent places. But we are significant to God, and He can make us strong in spirit and filled with His wisdom. Where we are going is more important than where we came from.
