Perhaps if you are a doctor it is arriving at your practice, seeing patients, and prescribing remedies.

A contractor might follow plans drafted up by another individual and ensure that a building or other project is completed.

A police officer would enforce the local laws, keep the peace and ensure that people were safe.

These three examples are general illustrations of what one person’s work day might look like. No two doctor’s, contractor’s or police officer’s would have exactly the same day, but we have a general sense of what others do for a living.

In our reading from Mark for this Sunday we get a sense of what Jesus did on any given day. His day was filled with worship, teaching, healing, fellowship and prayer.

Text: Mark 1: 29-39

Questions for Sunday:

  • What impression does this story give you about Jesus?
  • Do you feel there is anything lacking in your own work day (for those retired, in your days of leisure)?
  • How might you include moments of praise and prayer into your day?

Prayer for Sunday:

Eternal God, hope springs from you. As I live my life I pray that you would guide my thoughts and my actions. Allow me to praise your holy name in all that I do. In Jesus name. Amen.
