They Could Not Get Away From the People

To read the Bible in a year, read Mark 6:33-56.
Jesus and His disciples could not get away just to relax because the people sought them everywhere. So, Jesus encouraged them all to go someplace where they could find relaxation. They departed to a deserted place. Then Mark wrote, “But the multitudes saw them departing, and many knew Him and ran there on foot from all the cities. They arrived before them and came together to Him” (Mark 6:33). The people knew when they had something good and they were not about to let it get away from them. That happens when you serve people. However, time away cannot be avoided either. Serve others, but then seek time to refresh yourself.
