Mark 6:31-32 – He said to them, “Come away to a deserted place all by yourselves and rest a while.” For many were coming and going, and they had no leisure even to eat. And they went away in the boat to a deserted place by themselves.
It is healthy for us to remember the very human side of Jesus. Jesus recognized the need for leisure, eating together and rest for himself and those who worked with him.
God of our rest and of our work, help us to make time for our own re-creation, and remind us to encourage the same for those who work with us. Amen.
