The humbling experience of your hometown

Morning: Psalm 45; Ecclesiastes 2:16-26; Galatians 1:18 – 2:10

I left Manchester, England when I was 18 and never went back there to live.  Now, when I visit my family there, I sometimes feel as if they think of me as the same immature, annoying teenager that left there in 1971!  Do you ever have that kind of experience with your family?  I find it humbling, to say the least … that people think I haven’t gained any wisdom or understanding in all these years!  Maybe I’ve gained less than I think?  It’s vaguely reassuring that Jesus had a similar experience in his hometown.
