Gospel – Luke 4:38-44

In the gospel we see a very busy Jesus moving from one activity to another activity. Seems like one of our days where we move from one activity to another activity. But in the midst Jesus find a lonely place to be with His heavenly Father. All His activities revolve around this. His unity with His heavenly Father. That is the central point. From there He goes forward and not go back. Many times we don’t go forward and stuck up somewhere because we miss this central point. The lonely place where we can pray. We are also busy with lots of activities and we forget to find the lonely space to have time with our heavenly Father. So the challenge the Gospel presents is to find in midst of all our activities, a space where we can be alone with our Father in heaven.
