Lessons in the Boyhood of Jesus

"There was very little written of the boyhood of Jesus. I love the passage from Luke: “And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.” (Luke 2:52) And from the book of Acts, there is a short phrase concerning the Savior which has a world of meaning: “[He] went about doing good.” (Acts 10:38) -(President Thomas S Monson, He is Risen, Conference Address April 2010 General Conference)

We know the Savior knew the scriptures, because he quoted them often.  No doubt he spent time in them, studying them, and hearkening when the spirit whispered to him that he was the promised Messiah spoken of.  

May we all do the same, study the scriptures, and pray earnestly to know their meaning, as well as ask to know who we really are.
