Luke 10:40 – Serving Distracted

S – Luke 10:39-40 “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.


O – The story continues: “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! There is only one thing worth being concerned about. Mary has discovered it, and it will not be taken away from her.’”

A – I default towards Martha’s personality.  I must make time today to sit at the feet of Jesus.  I must prevent myself from being “worried and upset over all these details.”  He is the only thing worth being concerned about.

P – Lord, help me keep the main thing (You) the main thing in my life.

What is distracting you today?  Have you made time to sit at Jesus’ feet?
