THE

JUVENILE MISSIONARY RECORD.

A NEW YEAR'S SERMON FOR LITTLE READERS. “Wist ye not that I must be about my Father's business?"

LUKE ii. 49.
BUITTLE READERS,—These words were uttered

by Jesus when He was a child. He was only
about twelve years of age. It is strange

there are just the two incidents told us—the one of His infancy, the other of His boyhood ; then there is a long gap, and we come to the days of His manhood. Why is this? Simply that Jesus having been an infant, we are made sure He knows that beauteous life that is folded up like a sleeping flower in every infant's heart; and Jesus also having been a boy of twelve years, we are made sure He knows boyhood's life tooits tears, smiles, longings, its free generous thoughts, its temptations, and all the perils into which sometimes it so sadly falls. Jesus, then, is not for manhood alone. Jesus is also for the tenderest infancy, and Jesus is specially also for that age of growing youth, of changing tempers, and of deep, awful impressions—that age, my readers, through which most of you just now are passing.

See, then, what He said when only twelve years of age. Consider the words separately; they are very interesting and very solemn :

1. The My Father.” When told about him who was called his father Joseph, Jesus looked up to the roof of the temple and said, “ My Father !. One to whom He owed deeper love, larger faith, and holier service, even than to His dearest earthly tie. Father, mother, brother, sister, on earth He had none save in God who was to Him over all and blessed for ever. He saw God's countenance always over Him--He leaned always on the breast of God-He
