By Bible Names of God

      Luke 2:43 And when they had fulfilled the days, as they returned, the child Jesus tarried behind in Jerusalem; and Joseph and his mother knew not [of it].

      Here we have our first view of Jesus as a young lad, interested in the business of His Heavenly Father. Hear Him when Joseph and Mary seek Him: "Knew ye not that I must be about My Father's business?" The strangeness of the story of His life is a constant surprise. God manifest in the flesh --- a Child --- with Words of Wisdom falling from His lips --- a message for us all, "Occupy (do business) till I come!" Every disciple is a business man or woman, and our business is the most important in all the world. Let us take as a motto for our daily life the Words of the Child Jesus, "I must be about my Father's business!"

      Lord, help us to be busy about Thy business this day. Amen.
