More Than Bread Devotional for 5/4/11

41But the Lord answered her, “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things, 42but one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the good portion, which will not be taken away from her.”  – Luke 10:41-42

Ever feel like you have too much going on?  Martha had so much to do and so little time to do it and she asked Jesus to encourage her sister to help her.  Jesus indicates that there are more important things than a to-do list.  There are more important things than the tyranny of the task.  Mary had chosen to sit at Jesus feet and learn His teaching, His Word.  I think we can take the same lesson to heart in case we have forgotten it.  Spend time with the Master first.  The other things will have their time and if some of them never quite get done then what will it matter anyway.  Choose the good portion over the anxiety and trouble whenever you can.
