I believe what it is illustrated by this reference has to do with the concept of who will be welcome in the Father's kingdom.  This reference is found in various passages of Matthew.  The following passage highlights what will happen to God's children when the Father's kingdom comes.   Many references to the Kingdom of the Father, or the Kingdom of Heaven, have to do with those who suffer greatly on earth and how there is a special room, or place for them in the Kingdom.  Also mentioned, often, with regard to this reference is the concept that God is watching, and that one must always be mindful and watchful of judgment day.  A time that only God knows when it will occur.  Those caught unprepared, or in a state of sinfulness, will be left out of the Kingdom of the Father or the Kingdom of Heaven.   

Matthew 13:47-50 "Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind: Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away. So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just, And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth."

when jesus says he has to be about his father's business, it talks about the time he was in jerusalem during the passover and his parents left him. they found him in the synagogue and scolded him for not being with them, but he just told them that it was time he had to be about his father's business in spreading the Word of God, the Good News.
