LLLV19 12-30-2019 Obedience of Jesus/Mary’s Heart
Luke 2:51 Then He went down with them and came to Nazareth, and was subject to them, but His mother kept all these things in her heart. (NKJV)
I’m Larry Lilly and Luke gave us enormous insight into the humanity of Jesus Christ. He knew the anxiety of Mary’s heart.
He remained subject to mere humans Mary & Joseph while Joseph lived. Keep in mind Jesus, according to the Word, created the heavens and the earth. He is literally “God with us.”
Many younger folks get the idea, “I am smarter than Dad & Mom. Therefore I do not have to obey them.
From the human perspective, regardless of age, it’s an excellent decision to obey, to honor parents for as Paul taught to Honor parents is the First Commandment with promise, that promise being a long life.
Some of the “formative” years of Jesus featured obedience to a widowed mother.
Most children will respond to a Mother who understands.
