THURSDAY 29 JULY

Luke 10:38-42

As they went on their way, he entered a certain village, where a woman named Martha welcomed him into her home. She had a sister named Mary, who sat at the Lord's feet and listened to what he was saying. But Martha was distracted by her many tasks; so she came to him and asked, "Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to do all the work by myself? Tell her then to help me." But the Lord answered her, "Martha, Martha, you are worried and distracted by many things; there is need of only one thing. Mary has chosen the better part, which will not be taken away from her."

Thought for the Day

When Martha complained to Jesus that Mary was leaving her to do all the work, she expected that he would solve the problem. Instead he pointed out to Martha that the problem was not the amount of work she had to do, but that she had allowed herself to be taken up with things, that in the bigger picture were not really that important. There are times when people make demands on us and pressurise us into thinking that what they want from us is all important. We need to be able to stand back and take a good look at what really is important in our lives. An ability to listen, as opposed to just hearing is essential if we are to engage personally with the Word of God - Jesus. Other things will just have to take second place.
