Life can be so busy with everything going on from work, sports, kids and so on. That business sometimes can cause frustration, exhaustion and the feeling of going through the motions. So how does Jesus fit or relate to this picture?
Jesus loved and lived to serve others but Jesus himself knew that he needed to take time out for himself to rest and refresh so he could give his best to those that needed him. What if we do the same thing? What if we decided to have one day a week that we pick out as a family as a Sabbath day of rest? That one day no chores, no activities, no work, no noise, but a day where we just hang out with no agenda or plans? I believe we would be refreshed not only as individuals but also as a family. #Justarandomthought
Mark 6:31-32 New International Version 31 Then, because so many people were coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat, he said to them, “Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.” 32 So they went away by themselves in a boat to a solitary place.
