Lost and Found

Have you ever had one of your children get away from you? It happened to me once. I was walking from the car to an evening church service in a crowd of people with my five children. I may have been carrying the youngest, but I always had the children hold hands and stay right beside me. (It’s not easy being a single mother with five little ones!) When a fellow church member brought one of the children who had lagged behind to me, it was the first I realized one of my little ones wasn’t with me. I was horrified! It was only a matter of a minute or two but it scared me. Can you imagine what it was like for Joseph and Mary when their son was lost to them, not for minutes, but for more than a day and overnight? When they finally found Jesus at the Temple and questioned him about his actions, he couldn’t understand their concern. After all, though he was our Savior, he was also once a 12-year-old boy.

  1. Been there with my oldest. She always wondered off and I thought of using some sort of harness. It’s frightening but she was never concerned, she knew were she was. I feel that Jesus was often in the presence of the teachers at home and so expected his parents to know that’s where he would be. Thanks Sheila!
