DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

Faith – Priorities: In today’s Gospel Jesus reminded Martha of her need to prioritise and focus her attention and energy on Him; her Saviour and Lord.  She is not to get carried away by the superficialities of lives.  Beg God for the wisdom to learn to know, love and serve Him more fully.

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Luke 10:38-42

Jesus came to a village, and a woman named Martha welcomed him into her house. She had a sister called Mary, who sat down at the Lord’s feet and listened to him speaking. Now Martha, who was distracted with all the serving, came to him and said, ‘Lord, do you not care that my sister is leaving me to do the serving all by myself? Please tell her to help me.’
But the Lord answered, ‘Martha, Martha,’ he said, ‘you worry and fret about so many things, and yet few are needed, indeed only one. It is Mary who has chosen the better part, and it is not to be taken from her.’
