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

Today's Prayer
Thank you, Father, for guiding our steps so that our lives reflect your glory. Amen.
