Obedience Precedes Wisdom 
Bible verse: Luke 2:51-52 “And he went down with them, and came to Nazareth, and was subject unto them: but his mother kept all these sayings in her heart. And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.”
I remembered the discipline we went through while in elementary and secondary schools. Many people of my age that grows up in Africa will understand where I am coming from. In those days when our Parents and Teachers disciplined  us, we usually thought they were too harsh on us but we are all thankful today, because those upbringing and discipline we received helped us to achieve and made us what we are today.
From our scripture verses above, we can see that our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ was obedient “subject” to his parents before he could increase in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.
Can I encourage you reading this devotional today to reflect on this and determine to obey God’s commandments or “be subject unto your Heavenly Father”, then the increase in wisdom and stature, and favour with God and man shall be yours in Jesus Christ Name.
Prayer Outlines
Father God, from today I determined to obey you in every area of my life and receive increase, wisdom and favour with you and man in Jesus Christ name. Amen
