According to the Gospels, Jesus, at the age of 12, visited the Temple of Jerusalem with his parents. On the way back, he was left behind and his parents had to search for him. When they found him in Jerusalem, they scolded him for causing them to worry. Jesus replied, "Don't you know that I had to be in my Father's house to do His business?"

At the wedding in Cana, his mother was concerned about the shortage of wine, so she asked him to help the situation. Jesus said to here, "Woman, what have I to do with you? My hour has not come yet."

Simon Peter worried about Jesus when he heard him say that he would suffer in Jerusalem and tried to stop him from going there. Jesus said to his chief disciple: "Satan, get thee behind me, you are a hindrance to me, for you are not on the side of God but of men."

In all these instances, Jesus' primary concern was Father's business, Father's hour, and Father's way.

One of the most striking aspects of Our Leader's character is that he puts absolute priority on God and His work. However important is his wife, however loving are his children, he never allows them to interfere with his way. Much more, if the system or organization of our Church is not on the right track, he will abandon it. If you wish to be dutiful children to him, give absolute priority to the Heavenly Father and His work. Then you will be with Our Leader.

We are eternally indebted to the Leader, He has removed the barrier between man and God; he has opened the path. Any man who walks through the path can see God and live with Him. Jesus said, "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God." Seeing God face to face had been so remote and almost impossible. However, it is now possible because the barriers have been removed. And the scales on our eyes have been taken away through Divine Principle. We can now see God because the scales are taken off.

To accomplish this, Our Leader bled internally and externally; he shed many tears for us and for the spirit world. Therefore, both we and the spirit world owe him a debt of gratitude which we will never be able to pay, though we may try through the eons of eternity,
