How would you nurture God?
Luke 2:22-40. The presentation of the child Jesus at the temple
“The child grew and became strong, filled with wisdom; and the favor of God was upon him.”
If given the chance, how would you nurture God? We tend to focus our prayers towards supplications and petitions. But what if it was the other way around? How would we address the supplications of a child God?
Would you spoil Him, shower Him with all the wealth and blessings you can afford?
Would you overly protect Him, shielding Him from all sorts of minor or significant harm?
Or, would you let Him work, teach him the crafts of the world?
Would you let Him scratch His knees as He tumbles?
Imagine the temperance and discipline that Mary and Joseph possessed so that they may provide the most nurturing environment for the child Jesus – to grow strong, wise, and gain favor from the Father.
Perhaps, these should be the virtues of a business leader too.
