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. 39 Her sister, Mary, sat at the Lord’s feet, listening to what he taught. 40 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.”

41 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.”

Psalm 39:4-5

“Lord, remind me how brief my time on earth will be.
Remind me that my days are numbered—
how fleeting my life is.
5 You have made my life no longer than the width of my hand.
My entire lifetime is just a moment to you;
at best, each of us is but a breath.”

DEVOTIONAL QUESTIONS

Q: How were Martha and Mary’s reactions to Jesus different? What is the one necessary thing Jesus is talking about?

Q: Is your family more like Martha or Mary? Are you anxious and busy, or are you making time to learn from your Lord and to enjoy His presence?

Q: Time is the most precious resource: how are you spending it? How can you offer it to the feet of your Lord and for the service of others?
