A brief answer to a question that’s often blown out of proportion.

Jesus created the entire universe. Close to 1AD he entered history as a human. In anyone’s book he was pretty well qualified to tell us all how the whole thing works.

But he spent thirty years growing and preparing for just three years of ministry. That’s a lot of preparation, and not much hands-on leadership. A bit of a difference from today’s world, where one year is considered sufficient to prepare people for decades of leadership.

Today’s post was sponsored by the word: patience.
