I felt so convicted when I read Luke 10:41-42 and realized that I am so often just like Martha. I repeatedly choose to be busy with things I believe are so important for that moment - often things that don't really matter. Worldly business can be a snare to me especially when it hinders me from serving God and allowing "good" to enter my soul. I have missed many opportunities that God set before me because life was always about me seeking to be perfect. I searched for significance in the approval of others rather than holding myself accountable to the Lord, seeking to please Him. God has taught me that Mary made the right choice in this Bible passage. Jesus even stated that "Mary has chosen what is better and it will not be taken away from her." Instead of being caught up in myself, worrying, and upset about many things, I am now more diligent in pursuing the "right" thing - being still, letting go, sitting down, and listening for God to speak. When I do this, nothing I hear from God can be taken from me. That is the RIGHT thing!
