They could not get away from the people 

New Testament: Mark 6.33

To read the Bible in a year, read Mark 6.33–56 on February 26, In the year of our Lord Christ 2022

By Don Ruhl 

Jesus and his disciples could not get away from their work for relaxation because the people sought them everywhere. So, Jesus encouraged them all to go someplace where they could find relaxation. They departed to a deserted place. Then Mark wrote: 

But the multitudes saw them departing, and many knew Him and ran there on foot from all the cities. They arrived before them and came together to Him.

– Mark 6.33 

The people knew when they had something good and they were not about to let it get away from them. That happens when you serve people. However, time away cannot be avoided either. Serve others, but then seek time to refresh yourself. Otherwise, you will lose your energy and motivation.
