How To Keep Focussed Throughout The Year

Mark 1:32-38, "At evening, when the sun had set, they brought to Him all who were sick and those who were demon-possessed. And the whole city was gathered together at the door. Then He healed many who were sick with various diseases, and cast out many demons; and He did not allow the demons to speak, because they knew Him. Now in the morning, having risen a long while before daylight, He went out and departed to a solitary place; and there He prayed. And Simon and those who were with Him searched for Him. When they found Him, they said to Him, "Everyone is looking for You." But He said to them, "Let us go into the next towns, that I may preach there also, because for this purpose I have come forth." Another translation says, "For that is why I came."

They accused the Lord Jesus of all kinds of vile things, but no one ever accused Him of being too busy or unapproachable, uptight or upset. Our modern society values  busyness. In our culture, the busier we are, the more important we appear. Being preoccupied and consumed with our own personal affairs is considered an admirable trait. Our role-models in business, and even in the church, are often self-absorbed personalities who care little for those around them. But Jesus wasn't like that! Even though He was fully focused on that He had come to do, He always found the time to care for others. Jesus moved in serenity and tranquillity - the completely opposite to what we value in our society, but what we secretly desire. How did He do this?
