“And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God, and with man.”
                             -Luke 2:52                                               

This simple scripture is one of my favorite as it is bursting with insight. It expresses how Christ fulfilled different aspects of self and provides a beautiful model of how we might do the same: We should grow ourselves intellectually (increase in wisdom), physically (stature), spiritually (in favor with God), and socially (in favor with [wo]men). I try to make sure I give adequate attention to all these areas of my life and not neglect any one of them.

1)  How can YOU fulfill these aspects of self (intellectual, physical, spiritual, and social)?

 

2)  How do you keep them in balance?


PS: Please don’t think I’m a narcissist for including 4 pictures of myself. But it IS my post, after all.
