Today's encouragement comes from Luke 2:49, where we read these words:
"And He [Jesus] said to them [Mary and Joseph], 'Why did you seek Me? Did you not know that I must be about My Father’s business?' "
Sometimes the last place we look for someone, is the place we should have checked out first. Poor Mary and Joseph had searched for Jesus for three days in Jerusalem. Finally, they decided to see if He was in the temple. And when they did, they found Him.
Let us be about our "Father's business." For every true Christian, this means being found in church on Sunday. And, from there, it takes the various forms of our several callings in life.
