one thing needful

Luke 10:38-42

As Jesus and the disciples continued on their way to Jerusalem, they came to a certain village where a woman named Martha welcomed him into her home. Her sister, Mary, sat at the Lord’s feet, listening to what he taught. But Martha was distracted by the big dinner she was preparing. She came to Jesus and said, “Lord, doesn’t it seem unfair to you that my sister just sits here while I do all the work? Tell her to come and help me.”
But the Lord said to her, “My dear Martha, you are worried and upset over all these details! 42 There is only one thing worth being concerned about. Mary has discovered it, and it will not be taken away from her.”

God's talking to me about this. I do a lot of talking. And a lot of doing. Jesus said that there was one thing needful - to sit at his feet and listen to what He teaches. In my life as it stands at the moment, this means allowing more quiet time for just listening to Him. Putting aside the distractions; the worry and upset over all the details.

How about you?
