“Then Jesus and his disciples left Jerusalem and went into the Judean countryside. Jesus spent some time with them there”
(John 3:22 NLT)

With educational budget cutbacks class sizes are becoming larger and larger. With too many students individual attention from a teacher is becoming rare. Good teachers are able to spend time with their students. Getting away from the busy distractions of life makes it easier to develop each student’s abilities according to their unique interests or aptitudes.The Lord Jesus left the busy crowds of Jerusalem to take his disciples to a quieter setting. There the disciples listened to the Master as he prepared them for what they were called to do. For the Lord to prepare us for our created purpose we need to remove ourselves from the noise of busyness and have patience to listen for his voice as we study his holy Word. The good student stops to take a seat at the Good Teacher’s feet.
