The Wisdom and Favor of God

In this passage, Luke wants us to make a connection.  Jesus grows in wisdom, became strong in the Spirit, and the grace of God was upon Him.  Then in verse 52, He grew in favor with God and men.  The word favor is the same word as grace in verse 40.  This is the connection.  It is an inclusion around the narrative that is the only account of Jesus as a youth.
