Daily Word Of God
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.’
Today's Pointers on God's Word
As you read the passage what words, phases or meanings caught your attention?
- Are we like Martha, too preoccupied with our daily, worldly concerns and anxieties that God is no longer at the centre of our lives?
- Jesus will free us of our needless concerns and give us the peace and the strength to centre our lives more fully on loving and living for Him, only if we would “let go” of these concerns of ours.
- Are we willing to be more like Mary that we give Jesus our undivided love and attention daily? Are we prepared to change for the better?
