Mark 3:14-15 

14 Then He appointed twelve, that they might be with Him and that He might send them out to preach, 15 and to have power to heal sicknesses and to cast out demons:

Jesus appointed the 12 apostles, to spend time with Him. This was His first priority. After that came their ministry of Preaching, Healing, and casting out demons.

Note the priority outlined by the Bible:

1. To be with Jesus

2. To preach

3. To heal and deliver from evil spirits 

We in the church are experts in the ministry. But we really forgot that He called us to spend time with Him above all other work. If we do not follow this priority, we get burnt-out and become  ineffective.

=======================================

 What we would like from our children is the precious time we spend together as a family. I know of some old folks whose children are working overseas and seldom return to spend time with mom and dad. I guess it's the same in the Church- we are so busy with the ministry that we forget that Jesus wants us firstly to be with Him.
