But the Lord answered and said to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and bothered about so many things; but only one thing is necessary, for Mary has chosen the good part, which shall not be taken away from her.”–Luke 10:41-42
The Lord approved of Mary’s wise choice, but wasn’t at all impressed with Martha trying to get everything perfect. He said that what Mary was doing will never be taken from her. She was making a decision on earth that would have eternal rewards.
A prayer for today:
Lord, Give me a heart like Mary’s that seeks you above the endless distractions of this life. Teach me to desire only one thing: time spent at your feet. Open my eyes, ears, and heart to listen to You every day. In Jesus’s name, Amen
