How to avoid distraction and choose what's best (Luke 10:38-42)

by Chris Ekins on Sun 23 Sep, 12

Jesus wants relationship with us more then he wants service from us. He calls us to avoid being distracted by many things (often good things) and to listen to Him above all else. What things have been distracting you from listening to Jesus lately?

38 As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him. 39 She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said. 40 But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!”

41 “Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, 42 but only one thing is needed.[f] Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”
