Recently our No 2 daughter and I were discussing Jesus’ early life before He started His ministry.

She wanted to know if his 33 years took as long as our years now and if He had ever sinned during that time.

I told her that I thought the years were the same and also that Jesus never sinned.

Her reply was that “wow His parents wouldn’t have needed a wooden spoon for Him”.


The concept of a perfect Jesus is definitely believable and true, but definitely hard to fathom, considering our own sinful ways.

1 John 3:5  You know that He appeared in order to take away sins; and in Him there is no sin.

Hebrews 4:15 For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin.

1 Peter 2:22 “He committed no sin and no deceit was found in His mouth” 


You will find me linked up at some of these great blogs.


  1. That is a sweet thought your daughter had. How blessed it is to know that our Example NEVER sinned! I am so thankful to know that. Because of Him, we can be overcomers in our lives, too. He is a wonderful, faithful Lord! 🙂 So thankful to serve Him with you, sweet friend.

    1. Hey there Cheryl, sometimes it is quite amazing what our children come out with, and sometimes we just need to share. You are so right, He is a wonderful, faithful Lord. Thanks for stopping by. Blessings to you dear

  2. I’ve never really thought of his early years before. That’s a very insightful…well, insight! I would think that he may have been a typical rambunctious boy, but when corrected, obeyed. Although we’re not told much about his early years other than his being in the temple and his parents forgetting Him. Thanks for sharing that heartwarming story.

  3. I just love the honest questions of our kids. And I’m so glad they feel comfortable asking questions because it makes the life of Jesus so real. I know there was no sin but I wonder if there were a few mud puddle incidents LOL . Stopping by from Still Saturday. Blessings to you and yours.
