And it came to pass, that after three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both hearing them, and asking them questions. And all that heard him were astonished at his understanding and answers.
And when they saw him, they were amazed: and his mother said unto him, Son, why hast thou thus dealt with us? behold, thy father and I have sought thee sorrowing.
And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father's business?
Luke 2: 46-49
When Jesus was twelve, He went to the Temple with Mary and Joseph. After the feast, His parents left, but Jesus remained behind. Three days later, they found Jesus in the Temple with the elders who were amazed at His knowledge. Mary asked, "Son, why have You done this to us?" Jesus replied, "Did you not know that I had to be in My Father's house?"
At twelve, Jesus had wisdom to know what he had to do. Even as a young boy Jesus was conscious of God’s divine call on His life. He knew that he was not like other boys. He was called to his “Father’s business,” and that must be attended to, even if his parents did not understand. By going to the temple and talking with the priests, He knew He was in the right place to learn everything he could about our Father in Heaven.
We should take Jesus' example into our hearts. We also must be busy doing our Father’s business. Every day we should strive to do His will and live by His word. By praying, reading the scriptures and attending church, we too can learn so much about God
I pray that we will always have the desire to seek God, the way Jesus did
