He did his chores, listened to what he was told,

I am sure he wasn’t the perfect child, that’s for sure.

Of a different time in this same world of ours he lived,

He had his time with friends, running and laughing.

Different games they played, maybe some of the same,

It was tough being a teen, the same as it is today.

Jesus was a teenager on a most difficult path than any other,

From his childish ways to the most famous man and spirit today.

  2. Very interesting! I think we often forget this because the Bible only records only one instance when he was around 12/13. Reminds me of a scripture I love.

    Children, be obedient to your parents in union with the Lord, for this is righteous. ‘Honor your father and your mother’ is the first command with a promise: ‘That it may go well with you and you may remain a long time on the earth.’” Ephesians 6:1-3.
