Luke 2:49 “Why were you searching for me?” he asked. “Didn’t you know I had to be in my Father’s house?”
These are the words spoken by Jesus after Mary states that she and Joseph were looking for Jesus amid their family caravan on the way back home from the Festival of the Passover. After one day amid the journey home, they realize that Jesus is not with them and they begin to frantically search for Jesus. They initially respond like many parents would in this moment; they begin to retrace their steps. After three days they find Jesus. Where is He? In His Father’s House of course. What is He doing? He’s sitting among the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions. Three days. Hmmm… We’ll get into that more on Sunday. So then, back to the matter at hand; Jesus makes it clear very early on in His life and that He will always be about His Father’s business. Not Joseph, His earthly father, but God the Father in heaven.
How about you? Are you about the business of God?
Think about it. Pray about it. God bless.
