17 Mar Luke 2:43-44
43 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, 44 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.
Have your parents ever taken you someplace and you didn’t want to leave? How about Disneyland? The mall? Maybe the zoo? Jesus didn’t want to leave the temple and Mary and Joseph didn’t realize it for an entire day! Nobody wants you to stay behind from your parents, but have you ever spent an extra minute and talked to your Sunday School teachers or pastor about Jesus? How about asking your parents or grandparents about their faith in Christ. Try it!
