Jesus increased in...favour with God - do we?

"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, and more importantly, pray to know our relationship to our Father in Heaven, and Savior Jesus Christ.  Study in the scriptures and pray to know who we are, and who we can become with the help of the Lord.  

As we do, and as we keep God's commandments, we will feel the sweet peace of the spirit fill our hearts, and we will come to know that we are children of a loving Father in Heaven.  And that we have a loving Savior, Jesus Christ, who though sinless, gave his life for us.  May we remember that.  And Feel if it in our hearts and souls.
