But Martha was distracted with much serving. (Luke 10:40)
We see an interesting contrast between the two sisters, Mary and Martha, during Jesus' visit to their home. Mary's focus was upon the person of the Lord while Martha was scurrying about preparing a meal. When Martha complained to Jesus about Mary's lack of help Jesus said to her, "Martha, Martha, you are concerned with doing, but Mary has chosen the more important task of being." (Luke 10:41-42).
We face daily choices involving devotion or service. Spending time with the Lord enhances my relationship with Him and allows time to pause and listen. Just as Martha needed to learn to focus upon Jesus, so believers today need to learn that service is an extension of devotion to Christ.
Thought for the Day: Worship involves body, soul, and mind focusing solely ;upon God as Savior.
