Luke 4:42-43 hit hard recently.
And when it was day, he departed and went into a desolate place. And the people sought him and came to him, and would have kept him from leaving them, 43 but he said to them, “I must preach the good news of the kingdom of God to the other towns as well; for I was sent for this purpose.” 44 And he was preaching in the synagogues of Judea. (ESV)
You love people and want to serve them, but you feel a purpose that requires leaving them.
It’s hard to leave friends. It’s difficult to leave “need.”
Thinking of all my New Jersey friends at the church picnic today.
Love you and miss you.
