And he said to them, "Why did you seek me? Did you not know I must be about my Father's business? Luke 2:49
At an early age He was about His Father's business. ...Can we not follow His footsteps, filled with His Spirit, to finish the task appointed, with heart aglow and hurrying feet, with strong hands and steady mind. With shield of faith and sword of the Spirit, with patience to run the race that is set before us? Can we not trust Him for grace that is sufficient, for strength that is perfected in weakness, for help that is sure, and for faithfulness that will not fail, in order that we may know the discipline of doing our duty?
-Victor Raymond Edman (1900-1967)
