Today we are in Mark Chapter 3 vs 7-12 where Jesus strangely puts some distance between him and those who need and want him. We use this as a launching point to describe self care and the need for it. Once we see even Jesus himself needs his space at times we can feel encouraged to make sure we get our own self care.

Self care, how can I forget.
Although for most of us it would be the other way around… not helping enough.
I wonder if in today’s society we forget how much help we already provide just by paying our taxes and tithing, but there needs to be some sort of accountability that help is getting to the places where it is needed.
Hence businesses setup specifically to help others and yet even these enterprises often give charity a bad name.
