Scripture: Mark 6:6b-12, 30-32

God made our bodies and minds so He knows that we need times of rest. Christ's disciples had just returned from travelling to the villages to preach and heal people. He knew they were tired and so He led them to a quiet place to get some rest. God does not expect us to work so long and hard that our bodies and minds get overtired and we get sick. We need quiet times to rest so we can continue to do good work.

1. What did the disciples do after they went out and preached and healed?
They gathered around Jesus and reported to Him all they had done and taught.
2. What did Jesus tell them to do?
Come with Me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.
3. What can Christians learn from this?
It is important to tell Jesus what we have been doing, to be alone with Him and to have enough rest.

Memory verse: Matthew 11:28
Then Jesus said, "Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest."  (NLT)
