“Come with Me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.” -Jesus
Q: How’s life?
Today is a busy day for me. So is tomorrow. Then my wife goes out of town for a few days. What will that make me? Busy.
Busier than Jesus? No way. Jesus, who knew how to relax on the Sabbath. Jesus, who took epic naps. Jesus, who went up alone on mountainsides to pray.
Today’s challenge is to take my Bible and withdraw somewhere for at least 30 minutes. It has a good chance of being the best 30 minutes of my day. And to impact the rest of my day. And still, sometimes I get busy and don’t do it.
Mary and Martha learned a lesson about that. What did Jesus say? “Only one thing is needed.”
The world goes on if I take 1/48 of my day and spend it listening to God. Turns out I wasn’t the one making it work.
