Listen to God’s Word!
Some people think they are so busy they don’t have any time to listen to God. But taking the time to spend reading the Bible, praying, and listening to Him is exactly what we need! Martha was always so busy and blamed other people, including her sister, Mary. But Mary chose to learn from Jesus, which brought her a lot of peace and wisdom. When Martha complained to Jesus, He told her that Mary had chosen the most important thing to do: spend time with Him!
Psalm 119:105: Your Word is a lamp unto my feet!
What we listen to we will do. Even though what Martha was doing for Jesus was nice, that wasn’t what pleased Jesus the most. It was Mary’s desire to sit and listen to His words. It is more important to hear God’s Word that to worry about things.
