Extreme focus

today's reading.
Luke 2    In those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered...

More often than not we read Luke 2 to get a picture of the Christmas story. So today, I thought it would be nice to look at Jesus as a young boy in verses 41-52.

So Joseph, Mary and Jesus go to Jerusalem for the Passover and when the festival is over they head home. . .but without Jesus because he stays behind to spend time in the Temple with the religious leaders. After a frantic three day search, Jesus' words to Joseph and Mary are: "But why did you need to search? Didn't you know that I must be in my Father's house?" (vs. 49). Hmm. . .some good food for thought.

So, what do Jesus' words reveal to us about the importance of knowing and understanding God and His law? What does Jesus' focus on God tell us about our need to do the same? How are you accomplishing that? Tami W.
