There is a big difference between a haphazard growth and a steady growth.
While the former cannot withstand storm or viscititudes of life,the latter can stand the test of time.
An anonymous writer puts it succinctly this way:
“No obstacle can stand in the way of steady growth.”
Little wonder,it is written concerning Jesus that,
“He grew in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and all the people.”
His steady growth in wisdom and in stature couldn’t escape God’s attention and people’s favor.
