Dear Friend in the Lord,

Priorities – Faith: In today’s Gospel of the episode of Martha and Mary, Jesus proclaims, that we may be doing a lot of good things in life, like Martha.  However, if we do not have clear priorities of living our lives for God’s Glory, then ponder on: Are we using God’s blessings in fruitless ways that do not deepen our love for Him and for our Salvation?

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 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; it is not to be taken from her.’
