Send the people away so they can go to the surrounding countryside and villages and buy themselves something to eat” [Mark 6:36]
The attitude of time management is the ability to establish a plan of action while remaining flexible. Jesus was about to teach His disciples. He had an agenda and was giving them the opportunity to ‘take a break’ and listen. But then came an interruption
The disciples had all been out ‘doing for the Lord’ suddenly the next lesson of ministry training was about to begin. Now they would learn how to work together to meet the needs of the people—the time planned to teach a few became the moment of the miraculous to feed the multitudes. Faithful disciples who follow Christ will find themselves being offered the opportunity of being the message and seeing the miraculous.
Whatever is produced is accomplished through relationships and a love that is strong in terms of perseverance, “steadily, pouring yourselves out for each other in acts of love, alert at noticing differences and quick at mending fences.” [Ephesians 4:2b TM] .
Establishing healthy relationships both personally and professionally is key to moving forward. Jesus was using those that had ‘stuck with Him’ and were willing to leave the crowd and ‘come-apart’ and also followers that were flexible to the needs of the people.
The right attitude empowers us to press on toward the goal by being attentive to whoever God places in our path, working together to complete the task of increasing the kingdom.
