Are you busy about something lately? I know a poor girl who was a busy lady she had a sister right there and she didn’t get any help!
Luke 10:38-42 (KJV)
38 Now it came to pass, as they went, that he entered into a certain village: and a certain woman named Martha received him into her house. 39 And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus’ feet, and heard his word. 40 But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me. 41 And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things: 42 But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.
What did Martha do wrong? She only worked to do the work of herself and her “lazy” sister who was lying at Jesus feet listening to him not working
Wasn’t it her “job” to feed and to serve the Lord and his disciples?
Verse 41 thou art careful and troubled about many things? Does this describe you as well?
Matthew 6:27 (KJV)
27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
Mary knew Jesus could supply the meal!
Why is it important to stay in God’s will?
If we aren’t in the will of God we aren't able to survive!
Why is it more important to worship and serve God than any other thing?
Romans 8:31–32 (KJV)
31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? 32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
Yet even though I know that God is for us and nothing can be against us still we must remain in the will of God!
How do I get in God’s will?
Hebrews 11:6 (KJV)
6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
Isaiah 55:6 (KJV)
6 Seek ye the Lord while he may be found,
Call ye upon him while he is near:
1 Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain. 2 It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep.
