Jesus was in the temple asking questions, his parents had been clueless and lost him. But he went home, was obedient to them, and grew in favor...
As I read that story, I was reminded of what it was like to grow up with a high IQ and more wisdom than average...
I realized, as I was meditating on this story, that God will ask you to submit to authority that often doesn't understand you and may not even be as intelligent as you... But submit you must if you will find maturity and favor.
How often do we buck authority because we think we know better?
Submission brings maturity and favor that all the intellect in the world can't bring.
Shalom: Live Long and Prosper!
