After three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions, and all who heard him were astounded at his understanding and his answers.
How many of us have sat at the feet of our elders and benefited from their wisdom? How many of us have felt a strange stirring within and been amazed as understanding dawned in us? That is the gift of the Holy Spirit, living and breathing God’s own wisdom in each of us.
(Pray to God, using this prayer or a prayer of your own.)
Loving God, I am grateful for those people who have shared their wisdom with me. May I, like the boy Jesus, continue to grow in age, wisdom, and grace.
