Tired Compassion

Jesus and His disciples were tired from ministering to people even though the people kept coming so they got in a boat and tried to find a quiet place to rest and eat. Still they followed so Jesus had compassion and took time to teach them.

Mark 6:

31 Then Jesus said, “Let’s go off by ourselves to a quiet place and rest awhile.” He said this because there were so many people coming and going that Jesus and his apostles didn’t even have time to eat.

32 So they left by boat for a quiet place, where they could be alone. 33 But many people recognized them and saw them leaving, and people from many towns ran ahead along the shore and got there ahead of them. 34 Jesus saw the huge crowd as he stepped from the boat, and he had compassion on them because they were like sheep without a shepherd. So he began teaching them many things.
