Luke 1:30; Luke 2:40; Luke 2:52; Luke 4:22; Luke 6:32-34; Luke 17:9
And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.
And the child grew , and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom: and the grace of God was upon him.
And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.
And all bare him witness , and wondered at the gracious words which proceeded out of his mouth. And they said , Is not this Joseph's son?
For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them.
And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have ye? for sinners also do even the same.
And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive , what thank have ye? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again .
Doth he thank that servant because he did the things that were commanded him? I trow not.
