But the Lord said to her, “My dear Martha, you are worried and upset over all these details! There is only one thing worth being concerned about. Mary has discovered it, and it will not be taken away from her.” Lk.10:41-42. Martha was stressed running about busily. Even though Jesus was in her house, she wasn’t listening! Mary on the othethand was sitting at peace at the feet of Jesus listening and soaking up His every word. When Martha asked Jesus to ask Mary to help her, Jesus said Mary had chosen wisely and what she had gained she will not lose. What’s important is that we spend regular time at the feet of Jesus, so that when we do become busy, we won’t lose our peace, but can always find time to come away and spend time with Jesus who will refresh us and strengthen us. Praise God today that He is our peace and strength in all things as we choose to spend time with Him in the midst of our busy lives.
