That's what HE said... pt. IV

The end of Luke 12: Busyness is distracting.

38 Now as they went on their way, Jesus [4] entered a village. And a woman named Martha welcomed him into her house. 39 And she had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord's feet and listened to his teaching. 40 But Martha was distracted with much serving. And she went up to him and said, “Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her then to help me.” 41 But the Lord answered her, “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things, 42 but one thing is necessary. [5] Mary has chosen the good portion, which will not be taken away from her.”

After welcoming Jesus into her house, she became occupied with being the "hostess with the mostest" (you probably would be too if JESUS CHRIST were in your home). Even though she was busy doing good things, she was well... busy. When we fill our life up w/ schedules and constant craziness, there is no space for the spontaneous.

Create that space.

Only one thing is necessary, one thing is vital, if one thing in your life is a must- make it time w/ Jesus.
