Luke 10:39 She had a sister called Mary, who was seated at the Lord’s feet, listening to His word. 40 But Martha was distracted with all her preparations; and she came up to Him and said, “Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to do all the serving alone? Then tell her to help me.” 41 But the Lord answered and said to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and bothered about so many things; 42 but only one thing is necessary, for Mary has chosen the good part, which shall not be taken away from her.”

Sometimes, we can get so busy with life until we miss the most important thing we can ever have; an intimate relationship with God. It’s understandable. We work, manage children, cook, clean, attend our children’s activities, etc.

At some point, we need to prioritize our relationship with God instead of attempting to manage everything in the natural. We need to set aside time in our day to spend time with God. It could be in the morning before our day gets started, at lunch, or at night when everyone’s asleep. Those dishes may be screaming at you to wash them, but know, time with God is more important.

So, who will we imitate? We can be like Martha who was busying herself to get things done in the natural but forsook intimacy with Jesus, or we can be like Mary who valued the presence of Jesus and delayed managing things in the natural.
