Martha, Martha

This week I feel challenged again by the story of Mary and Martha once again.  Interesting that Jesus says her name twice.  It reminds me of a child that you must repeat something multiple times simply to get their attention.  How easy it is to become pre-occupied with many things, when He is only asking me for one thing.

“Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, 42but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.” Luke 10:41-42

It is crazy to me how so many good things can consume our lives and schedules.  How often is the enemy of our relationship with the One who made us, busyness?  Today  I encourage myself and you to slow down, sit at his feet, and simply enjoy Him!  For this is the only thing that cannot be taken away from us!
