Lessons from Mark (Free Time)

And when he had sent them away, he departed into a mountain to pray. (Mark 6:46)

This verse occurs right after the feeding of 5,000 men; the disciples had been sent across the lake, and Jesus sent away the crowd.

So, now the crowd has left, and Jesus is all alone.  What does He do?  He “departs into a mountain to pray”.

What do we do when we have free time?  Is our first thought to turn to  God in prayer? Or do we turn to playing games? Or to rest?  Or to a list of things we need to do?  Jesus, our great example, prayed when He had some free time.
