Be careful making assumptions.
Pray The Word and Prepare for The Word
Luke 2:49 - "Didn't you know that I must be in my Father's house?"
Read - Luke 2:41-52
Ever had a child wander away? Today’s text reminds us of the old adventure slogan: “Not all who wander are lost.” Yet, even though Jesus knew exactly where He was supposed to be, his family didn’t get the memo. The devotion of this pre-teen Messiah would mark His adult life but even then He found ways to also be obedient to His family. Following God doesn’t sacrifice one for the other unless your devotion to something in your family goes against God’s Word (is sinful).
Lord, I will be obedient to You and Your Word.
Jesus (the Word of John 1) modeled amazing commitment and devotion to God’s Word.
As a young boy, Jesus was in a season of great growth. The scriptures teach that His growth was not only physical (stature) but also spiritual (wisdom). If Jesus, the Son of God, could grow in this way then we certainly can. Challenge yourself to grow to Know God more!
