DG BookGospel: Mk 6:30–34
The apostles returned and reported to Jesus all they had done and taught. Then he said to them, “Let us go off by yourselves
into a remote place and have some rest.” For there were so many people coming and going that the apostles had no time even
to eat. And they went away in the boat to a secluded area by themselves. But people saw them leaving, and many


could guess where they were going. So, from all the towns, they hurried there on foot, arriving ahead of them.
As Jesus went ashore, he saw a large crowd, and he had compassion on them for they were like sheep without a shepherd.
And he began to teach them many things.

 

Reflection:

Jesus knows the value of rest. Continued and sustained activities without
pause might be praised by some as expression of dedication and industry,
but in the long run, it will have a detrimental effect to the person and to work. For
we need to pause once in a while. We need to recover our strength and replenish
our enthusiasm and creativity. Not doing does not mean less productivity.
For without break, our thoughts get clogged and slow down. Attention to
details become weak, and we become prone to decide on anger and irritation
rather than on calm appreciation of the facts at hand. That is why Jesus
decides to take His disciple to a secluded place. They need to renew themselves
by resting.
