Jesus was extremely busy doing His father’s work. He would get up in the early morning to pray, and then he would go about the cities and towns preaching, teaching, healing the sick, and casting out demons (Mark 1:32-35). Additionally, the Gospels informed us that Jesus healed all that came to Him, causing the crowds to follow him and the disciples wherever they went (Matthew 8:16, Luke 4:40-41).

Since Jesus and his disciples were humans, they needed time to rest from the demands of ministry. Realizing His disciples were exhausted, the scripture said in Mark 6: 31-32, “And he said unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while: for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat. And they departed into a desert place by ship privately.” Similar to us, when we get busy and don’t stop to eat or rest, Jesus and His disciples had that same experience.

Fortunately, Jesus addressed the issue and showed us that taking a break was o.k. He understood life could be taxing: physically, mentally, and emotionally. Needless to say, in this chaotic stress-producing world in which we live, we all need to take a break. So, that is what I am going to do for the next several weeks. After that time, I will return to my weekly blogging. Until then, I pray all will be well with you, and if you haven’t done so, please take a break.
