They sought rest as others sought them so they ministered to them instead…this is a great definition of compassion.
Pray The Word and Prepare for The Word
Matthew 14:16 - Jesus said, "That isn't necessary--you feed them."
Read - Matthew 14:13–21; Mark 6:30–44; Luke 9:10–17; John 6:1–15
The disciples returned from a tour of 2x2 ministry and Jesus’ recognized their need for rest. Seeking rest after investing heavily in others is a good thing. However, others don’t often wait till you are rested before bringing their need to you…how do you handle that? You serve and love and then look for another opportunity to rest.
Lord, I will serve You by being the hands and feet of your miraculous love for others!
