Rest a while: Mark 6.31 VOTD

“He said to them, ‘Come with me privately to an isolated place and rest a while’ (for many were coming and going, and there was no time to eat).”

Mark 6. 31

After the Twelve returned from preaching in Israel, Jesus wanted them to rest, far from the crowds. He knew the value of resting from one’s labors.

Jesus had the habit of getting away from the crowds to rest and pray, Mk 1.35. He created moments for the Twelve as well and shows us the importance of respecting this need in ourselves.
