Bride of Christ

Distracted 7/29/14

Mary, sat at the Lord’s feet, listening to what he taught. But Martha was distracted by the big dinner she was preparing!     Luke 10:39-40 NLT

You know the story?   Mary sat and listened, and Martha was busy doing!    Martha didn't like it and complained to the Master, "Don't you care that I am doing all this while Mary is just sitting there?  Tell her to get up and help"!  

The Lord spoke softly to Martha, “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..."

No, the Lord wasn't rebuking Martha for working.   He was tenderly addressing a deep rooted struggle within her.... Distraction!

Beloved if you are easily distracted and worried about all the details, you will be a bit of a pain to those around you.

Today... take time to open your Bible... sit, as it were at the feet of Jesus, and ask Him to show you how to, "Be still... and know that I am God"!   Ask Him to show you what the assignment is for today...

Then get up and go to work... stay focused!
