Are You Appreciated?

At times many of us feel like we are just occupying space! One prescription for that ailment is to be away for a few days. You’ll be greatly appreciated when you get back home or return to your job. You may be treated like a celebrity making a personal appearance! The old expression “absence makes the heart grow fonder” was penned by a deep thinker. Maybe he missed his wife’s home cooking!


Another factor to take under consideration is that at times we just need some space, time away from someone to recognize their strengths, and how much we really need them. The Apostle Paul and John Mark had a heated “parting of the ways.” I’d guess that as in most disagreements, both had a share in the conflict. That did not mean separation must be final. “Only Luke is with me. Get Mark and bring him with you, for he is useful to me for ministry (2 Timothy 4:11 NKJ).” I wonder how much coaxing was needed by Timothy to get Mark to leave. I think he may have already had his bags packed, and was just waiting for an invitation!
