10/25/2018 — Luke Chapter 10
Again, a reading with so many important teachings and examples. But a single word from Luke 38-41 caught my attention.
41 “Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, 42 but few things are needed—or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”
From earlier verses we see that Martha was not idle — in fact she was doing “good works.” She was serving the Lord and His disciples. So, what she was doing was in no way wrong (and we should also be doing “good works.”) But she had set aside the greatest priority to perform a lesser one.
What she neglected was worship & a focus on the Lord. The lesson for us is obvious.
