20210108 Friday After Epiphany

In Luke 5:15 – 16 we read:

The report about him spread all the more, and great crowds assembled to listen to him and to be cured of their ailments, 16 but he would withdraw to deserted places to pray. [1]

All through the Gospels we read about Jesus withdrawing to a deserted place to pray. 

We too need to slip away from the world with all the chaos, turmoil, television, music, and social media along with whatever else distracts us.  We need to read the scriptures, spend some quiet time reflecting on those verses and praying for God’s help, for his mercy and guidance to live lives of humility and service for others. 

We must follow Jesus’ example to survive in this world.
