Team Building: Mark 6:30-32
“30) The apostles *gathered together with Jesus; and they reported to Him all that they had done and taught. 32) And He *said to them, “Come away by yourselves to a secluded place and rest a while.” (For there were many people coming and going, and they did not even have time to eat.) 33) They went away in the boat to a secluded place by themselves.” ‭‭Mark‬ ‭6‬:‭30‬-‭32‬
Just like the seventy would later return and report to Jesus about their ministry success (Luke 10:17), so had the twelve. There is no record of their stories, but they shared with Him all they had done and taught.
I like this text. Jesus was interested in their stories. The same is true of you and me as we serve Him. He wants to be part of our lives.
Unfortunately, it was so people busy, the ministry team did not have time for meaningful exchange. Jesus saw the value of team building. So they got in a boat and sought a place of solitudes to debrief, reflect and relax. There are valuable lessons to learn from these verses.
