Oh, the humanity….

John 1:14 – “The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.”
Yesterday on the way to school, my kids and I were talking about the humanity of Jesus. We were talking about what it might have been like for Jesus’s brothers and sisters.
Can you imagine? Mary must have had times when she would think to herself, “Now, Jesus never did that.” Remember, He was sinless and never had a bad thought – that was one my daughter could hardly wrap her brain around!
But at the same time, we have to remember that Jesus went through all the same temptations that we do. Ecclesiastes 1:9 – “What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.” That is a comfort, princess. Jesus had the same sufferings that we do today.
So take heart, dear princess. Jesus has been there and done that and made it through.
Take a moment and smile to think about Mary having to calm a rough housing time of the boys by saying, “Hey! Get off of Jesus! He is the King of kings!”
