In Luke 10:38-42, Jesus visited the home of Mary and Martha. What an honor to have Jesus as a guest. Certainly getting everything in order and serving the King of Kings at the highest level was in order.
But to stress out and become blinded toward the real need and what Jesus really expected is the lesson for us today.
Many of us are like Martha and too few of us are like Mary.
The Mary/Martha senerio is a powersful reminder of the need to sit at the feet of Jeaus and hear from Him versus stressing out.
Despite what is on your plate for each day, stop and sit at the feet of Jesus .
Jeaus is not asking you to read and pray all day when He knows you work and have things to do. Just include Him and watch work and things to do, get done with more joy than stress.
Resist the temptation to rush into the day stressed or solving problems. Stop and sit at the feet of Jesus and get some direction first.
