Look and Listen

Luke 2:44 Thinking he was in their company, they traveled on for a day. Then they began looking for him among their relatives and friends.

I remember one time at Walmart my son and I had to use the bathroom. We were doing our business and he was telling me about a new video game he wanted. I was half listening just to know he was in my company. He was finish and washed his hands. Then he went out the door. I took my time assuming he was waiting on me. Well, when I was done and opened the door, he was gone. I will never forget the panic I felt. Where was my son? Well, many Christian are feeling that same panic today. They are waking up and saying “Where is Jesus” assuming He was on pause. We have been so busy doing our business and fail to notice He moved on. I found my son after I searched with all my heart. He was looking at the video game he was telling me about. My point is this. If you are only half listening and assuming the Lord is in your company you are going to end up in a panic.
