The apostles were sent out to spread the word of God, drive out demons, and heal many sick people. There were so many people coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat. They had no leisure.
Do you sometimes feel like you are working yourself to exhaustion? Some days are you so caught up you don’t even stop for lunch? Jesus told his disciples to rest. We must rest as well. If we are to be effective in doing all our daily work, we must be filled with the spirit and take time to care for ourselves.
