Mark 6:34-44

The feeding of the five thousand immediately follows the return of the Twelve from mission. They are asking Jesus for quiet time with him to rest, reflect, discuss, and process all that has happened on their journey, but ministry to the people comes first. Jesus knows the crowds are hungry, physically and spiritually, and must be fed.

Lord, you show me often that the interruptions are the work you call me to. Help me to let go of my agenda and put my needs aside in order to do your will and to serve others.
