Could you imagine losing the Son of God?
I cannot imagine what Mary and Joseph were feeling especially if they knew that Jesus was the Son of God. I mean, they must have been going out of their minds. Not only because it was their child but because He is the Son of God.
And they lost Him!
Once my kids were “ripped away” from me. They were only 2 and 3 years old. I knew where they were physically, but they were “lost” to me, not home with me, their mother.
They were restored to my home 10 days later, Praise the Lord. It was a frightful time. I don’t know if my feelings were like what Mary and Joseph felt with their “losing” the Son of God.
Putting it in perspective
When you think about it, God knows where all things are, all people, and even all promises. He hasn’t lost a thing.
Pray for the location of the lost thing and for the promises to come. If you have lost something, can it be replaced? Was it that valuable that it is irreplaceable? I ask you again, could you imagine losing the Son of God?
So, the next time you think about losing something think to yourself, at least I didn’t lose the Son of God.
(Or did you? Something to think about.)
