News about Jesus kept spreading. Large crowds came to listen to him teach and to be healed of their diseases. But Jesus would often go to some place where he could be alone and pray. Luke 5:15-16 (CEV)
Jesus was well-known by many. He spent time teaching and taking care of the crowds, helping and healing many people. He knew the importance of spending time alone and in prayer. Jesus also understood the importance of balance in His relationships. He demonstrated the importance of being with others, but also needed time alone with the Father to communicate with Him.
We were created for relationship with both God and others. We need to spend time with other people, but also need to spend time with God. We need to find the balance between pouring into others and getting refilled so we can continue to help others. We need to protect our relationships.
Look at how you spend your time. Do you spend all your time with other people? Do you spend most of your time alone or with God? Ask God where you need to change so you can find the balance in your relationships with other people.
