Imitating the Hidden Life of Jesus

We mostly think about imitating the active life of Jesus. Yet, for the most part, our lives are an imitation of the hidden life of Jesus, the hours in the workshop, the meals with the family, the Sabbaths at the Synagogue, the pilgrimages to Jerusalem for the High Holy Days, in family birthdays, weddings and funerals, in shop talk and play, in laughing and crying. This comforts me in that I realize He obeyed and served God just like I do, not just in the public life, but also and for most of his life in everyday existence.
