According to the bible, Jesus parents attended a festival in Jerusalem every Year known as the feast of Passover at the age of 12, his parents attended this festival withThey found him after three days search.
Just imagine at this time technology wasn’t yet available no any form of the announcement could be made on television, radio or mobile phone message. They, later on, found him, and it is said that he was in the temple courts, sitting among the teachers, listening to them and asking questions. Everyone who heard him was amazed at his understanding with his answers.’’ (Luke 2:46, NIV)
His parents both angry and amazed asked him: Son why have you treated us like this？Your FATHER and I have been anxiously searching for you.’’
Luke 2:48 NIV
As young as he was he gave an answer that shocked everyone who was around: he said,“Why were you searching for me?’’ He asked. Didn’t you know I had to be in my father’s house?” (Luke 2:49, NIV)
Talking of spending time pursuing his vision in life, which he called his father’s business at the age of 12. Jesus was not found playing soccer or (tsoro) at the playgrounds. He was with religious leaders not playing silly games or kids games but as a moderator in a discussion for three days and looked very comfortable.
Every living thing has its kind of environment or place that will enable it to perform its specific function, I will give an example of a crocodile if you put a crocodile outside water it will not be able to attack the same way it attacks when it’s in water, same applies to fish, when you take fish out of water you have weakened it and it won’t be able to survive, it wiggles on the ground and dies.
What happens if you put a rabbit in the same water it will just drown to death what causes one to die it's what causes one to survive, water can cause a rabbit to die but it can cause a fish to survive. What am I trying to say here? We function best when we locate ourselves where we are best suited。
