Sunday, January 14

Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed. Simon and his companions went to look for him, and when they found him, they exclaimed: “Everyone is looking for you!” Jesus replied, “Let us go somewhere else—to the nearby villages—so I can preach there also. That is why I have come.” So he traveled throughout Galilee, preaching in their synagogues and driving out demons. 

Mark 1:35-39

1.) What does Jesus do in the beginning of this passage?

2.) Why do you think he goes off to be by himself?

3.) What can you learn from Jesus taking time to be by himself to pray and reflect?
