Mark chapter 6 verses 30 - 34 (New Living Translation)
The apostles returned to Jesus from their ministry tour and told him all they had done and taught. Then Jesus said, “Let’s go off by ourselves to a quiet place and rest awhile.” He said this because there were so many people coming and going that Jesus and his apostles didn’t even have time to eat.
So they left by boat for a quiet place, where they could be alone. But many people recognized them and saw them leaving, and people from many towns ran ahead along the shore and got there ahead of them. Jesus saw the huge crowd as he stepped from the boat, and he had compassion on them because they were like sheep without a shepherd. So he began teaching them many things.
Prayer & Reflection
Lord, thank You that You listen. No matter what words are on our mouth, or what is in our hearts, You listen to what we have to say.
Thank you that You that You care for us, You look out for us, that You are the Good Shepherd.
