4/11/13 Daily Devotion

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

Jesus had come into the home of Martha. Martha began to prepare a meal in honor of Jesus’ presence, while Mary sat at the feet of Jesus and hung on every word He brought forth into the room. Martha took her sister’s inaction as a negative response to a situation that needed dire attention. There she sat listening to Jesus, when she should have been assisting her sister in preparing the meal. Worry overtook Martha. She wanted to make a meal that was worthy of Jesus, but she seemed to be overwhelmed with the task. She went to Jesus in hopes He would encourage Mary to assist, but instead learned a lesson herself. Jesus understood Martha’s plight, but He wanted to make sure she understood that there were times when other things were more important. We worry so much about things that are out of our control, and this causes us to remain blind to some things that are important, things that can have an affect on our spiritual lives.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me understand what is truly important within my day, and help me refrain from worrying about those things that are not.
