Mary and Martha

Our Bible verses today tell us about two sisters, Mary and Martha. Mary sat and listened to Jesus. I imagine that she learned a lot that day. She wasn’t worried about dinner. She preferred to spend time with Jesus instead of preparing the meal.
Meanwhile, Martha was busy in the kitchen. She was worried and frustrated about dinner. Martha probably wanted the meal to be special for Jesus. But she forgot that Jesus is more important than food.
Sometimes I am like Martha. I am so busy doing things for Jesus that I forget I need to take time and listen to Him — read the Bible, pray, and think about how I can apply His words to my life.
Jesus told Martha (verse 42), “Only one thing is important. Mary has made the right choice; and it will never be taken away from her.” Mary chose to pay attention to Jesus. I hope that you will make the same choice today!
