Are You Doing the Good Part?


Just compare yourself to these two sisters.

Even though they were sisters, Martha and Mary, acted very differently than each other one day when Jesus was with them.

Martha was busy serving all of the food while Mary sat by the feet of Jesus (Luke 10:38-42).

Martha showed how upset she was at her sister. She basically asked Jesus to tell Mary to get up and help her instead of just sitting there.

Jesus told her that she was careful and troubled about many things but only one part was needed and Mary had chosen that good part.

Martha
How does this affect you? Which one of the sisters are you acting like? Are you acting like Martha did in her hurried work for the Master?

Sometimes we can be too busy to even listen to God. It's really sad but even if you're doing the work in a church for the Lord, you might miss the most important part...

The thing is that Martha did the work but her mind was not where it should have been. She was troubled. She was disturbed.

She was stressing and thinking about how much work she was doing -which was more than someone else! She was getting more and more frustrated and upset while she was working...

She wasn't really listening to what Jesus was saying even though she was serving Him food!

Try it!
Talk to someone and while you're talking to them, have them tell you something. How much did you understand them? Did you understand what they said at all?

When you're talking to someone it's rather difficult to hear them if they start talking to you!

It's possible sometimes to catch part of it -but if doing it in an everyday, normal way it's even more difficult than during a short test!

Prayer
Yes, we ask God for a whole lot of things. He promised us a whole lot.

It's a good thing to pray a lot. We're told in 1Thessalonians 5:17 to pray without ceasing.

That's praying continually. ...But we need to always remember that prayer is a two-way conversation!

When you ask Father God for something, always listen for His response!

Mary
Mary sat and listened to what Jesus said. She wasn't busy making sure that good food was on the table. She wasn't mulling over hurts or building up grudges in unforgiveness.

Mary wasn't talking the whole time while hoping Jesus would yell so that she could hear Him!

Mary sat and listened to what Jesus was saying so that she didn't miss it and could live the way that He was saying...

Time
Have a time with the Lord so that you can know Him more and more! We spend time with other people so that we can get to know each other. How much more important is it that we spend time with God!

How are we really going to get to know Him if we don't?

Read the inspired Word of God. Everything in the Bible accurately tells of Him -what He's done, is doing, and will do for you.

Don't miss out the better part! Spend time with God and His Word everyday!
