leaving Jesus

November 29, 2010

Now His parents went to Jerusalem every year at the Feast of the Passover.  And when He became twelve, they went up there according to the custom of the Feast;  and as they were returning, after spending the full number of days, the boy Jesus stayed behind in Jerusalem. But His parents were unaware of it, but supposed Him to be in the caravan, and went a day’s journey; and they began looking for Him among their relatives and acquaintances. — Luke 2:41-44 NASB

Jesus is always right where he’s supposed to be.  Sometimes we get ahead of him, often by doing the usual and expected thing.  Then we need to go back and find him.  He isn’t lost; we are.   (courtesy Ron Scates)
