Read Luke 10:38-42

38 As Jesus and his disciples went on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha welcomed him in her home. 39She had a sister named Mary, who sat down at the feet of the Lord and listened to his teaching. 40Martha was upset over all the work she had to do, so she came and said, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do all the work by myself? Tell her to come and help me!”
41 The Lord answered her, “Martha, Martha! You are worried and troubled over so many things, 42but just one is needed. Mary has chosen the right thing, and it will not be taken away from her.”


Mary gets busy doing the catering while Martha sits at the feet of Jesus.  This frustrates Mary and she asks Jesus to reprimand Martha.  But Jesus commends Martha and reprimands Mary.  The most important thing of all - is to sit at Jesus feet and take in his teaching.


Lord I like to be productive; I like to get things done.  But you call me to stop and listen to you.  You tell me that that is the most important job I have to do today.  Help me to slow down and enter your presence.
