June 14

“Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, but few things are needed—or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”  Luke 10:41-42 (NIV)

These are words Jesus spoke to Martha when she became irritated at her sister Mary for not helping her with household duties. Mary had been so attentive to what Jesus was teaching. She sat at His feet listening and was taking it in. Is this the way we react when we hear Jesus’ words? When we have an opportunity to read or hear His word taught, are we open to what He is telling us? We can miss it if we allow other things – even good things to distract us. Jesus said that Mary had chosen what is better and it will not be taken away.
