Mark 6:30-34 (NLT)
30 The apostles returned to Jesus from their ministry tour and told him all they had done and taught. 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.

In these verses we find Jesus and the disciples are performing a large ministry for others. There were so many people Jesus sought a quiet moment with His disciple. They were in need of something to eat and rest. But the people kept seeking out Jesus and He had compassion for them. So even though Jesus needed to eat and rest He stopped to once again teach the people.

Mother Teresa gave her life serving others in overwhelming conditions. She had words of wisdom for all of us. �Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat. Even the rich are hungry for love, for being cared for, for being wanted, for having someone to call their own. One of the greatest diseases is to be nobody to anybody.� Jesus saw the need of people and reached out to them even when He was tired and hungry. Are you taking the time and effort to love and care for others?
