“Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.” – Luke 10:41-42 NIV
The Lord can help us reassign our priorities so that we can see what is important and what is optional.
Our time is a finite resource, and when we have boundary issues, we sometimes get overloaded, the way Martha did when she got carried away with making preparations for Jesus and His disciples to visit. Her sister, Mary, instead of helping Martha with her long “to do” list, sat at the feet of Jesus and listened to what He had to say.
I can identify with Martha’s annoyance. Sometimes we have too much to do and want other people to help, but Jesus helps us to see what we can cut back on. Amen
