Sometimes our lives become so busy and cluttered that we are left with no time for God. As Christians, we must have our priorities straight, and our number one priority is living our lives according to God’s word. This week, we draw our message from Jesus’s visit to Mary and Martha, whose responses exemplify how we should respond and how we often do respond to God’s presence in our lives.
38 Now as they were traveling along, He entered a village; and a woman named Martha welcomed Him into her home. 39 She had a sister called Mary, who was seated at the Lord’s feet, listening to His word. 40 But Martha was distracted with all her preparations; and she came up to Him and said, “Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to do all the serving alone? Then tell her to help me.” 41 But the Lord answered and said to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and bothered about so many things;42 but only one thing is necessary, for Mary has chosen the good part, which shall not be taken away from her.”
