Jesus and His disciple worked hard, but they did not drive themselves to exhaustion. Jesus took them away to rest. Doing God's work is very important, but Jesus recognized that to do it effectively, we need periodic rest and renewal. He made sure that His men took care of themselves, not only spiritually, but also physically as well.
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.
New Living Translation
The same true in our walk of faith and service. Regular times of rest are essential to avoid burnout and discouragement. Jesus sought spiritual balance during His life on earth, even in the face of great demands. God Bless and Have a great night in God’s Word.
