In the story of Martha in the gospel, she started off well — she invited Jesus into her home. But then she got distracted and burdened by all the things she felt she had to do. She started complaining and feeling sorry for herself, and thought she’d get a little sympathy from Jesus. But he corrected her instead: “Martha, Martha, only one thing is needed.”
We’ve all been given a mission by God, good works to do. How do we know what those are? We have to spend time at the feet of Jesus listening to Him. We can be so busy serving Jesus that we might miss what it is he is asking us to do.
Life is a tremendous gift. How are we using ours?
