Jesus said to his parents, “[Know] ye not that I must be about my Father’s business?" - Luke 2:49 (KJV)
While reading about the prophet Anna in Luke’s Gospel, I felt guilty. A widow, Anna “did not depart from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day.” I’m also a widow but have never spent a whole day praying, let alone fasting. Was I failing God?...
How am I going about the Father’s business today?
