It can be tiring to always be wanted. Moms and dads of young children know this feeling full well. Whether its to show them their latest finger painting or needing help going to the bathroom, mom or dad must always be informed. And let’s not forget when they can’t actually accomplish something on their own, then mom or dad is needed immediately.
How it was for Jesus. Every town He went to, every home He entered, there was a need. Fevers, diseases, demons. A never ending job. A task to great for mere man. Even Jesus the God/man needed time to pray.
Therein lies our lesson. All of the tasks that Jesus had to accomplish were way too much for any mere man. A task to big for us. All that He accomplished He did so that we would know what eternity is like with Him.
