Luke 2:49 And he said unto them, How is it that all of you sought me? know all of you not that I must be about my Father’s business?

Jesus told us to follow Him. That means to follow His example of being about the Father,s business. Our question is what is our Father God’s business. Jesus showed us the Father,s business is about love, healing and forgiveness. We are to love all of God’s creation. We are to heal rather than cause harm and we are to forgive. We all fall far short of those three virtues. When we have a critical thought or say a harsh or critical word we are not acting I love and we are causing harm. When we refuse to give up a hurt we are not forgiving. We seem to enjoy evaluating others. This is the same as judging. We judge by our standards rather than God’s love. Jesus once said whoever is without sin cast the first stone. They all put down their stones and turned away. We must out down our criticism and judgemental thoughts and words and get on being about our Father’s business; love, heal and forgive.
