Life was designed by God to be enjoyed. We are to enjoy our family, our church, our community, our jobs, etc. The problem most people have today is that they put the emphasis on the wrong things in life. Yes, they love Jesus and are on their way to heaven, but they stress out on things in life that are just not important. Mary and Martha had Jesus in their house. Mary sat at Jesus feet and listened to every work he spoke. Martha was so busy trying to make everything perfect for Jesus that she was missing out on the most important thing, hearing Jesus’ words. (Luke 10:40-42 But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!” 41. 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.”) Today will offer you many things that can occupy your time. The test on our part is what we will allow to control our steps today and what we will spend our energy doing? Will it be something that will make a difference in someone’s day or will it be advancing our own cause? If we can ever grasp what Jesus said to Martha and live our lives in this manner, we will see what Jesus promised when he said “seek you first the kingdom of God and all these things will be added to you.” Do what is important today! Don’t be so stressed out on details. Pastor Don [image: image.png]
