Feb. 4, 2017 (Mark 6:53-56)

“… and they had no opportunity even to eat.” Jesus, in Mark’s Gospel, always seems to be on the move (remember what goes on during His first day of ministry). He was constantly being bombarded by people to satisfy their need for healing. So, Jesus tries to make time for His disciples and Him to get away (often unsuccessfully) much like Steven Covey used to promote in his 7 Habits: sharpening the saw. We all need to get away on a retreat from time to time but it may seem to be impossible. We must remember not to neglect our own self while we live our lives for others. it is a delicate balance.
