We live in a society where being busy is the new normal. One of the most challenging things we face daily is the busyness of life. Life seems to often put a demand on our time and attention. The cares of life can often distract you from your original goals and plans. Have you ever felt overwhelmed with busyness?
There is a story in the Bible of when Jesus visited Martha and her sister Mary. Mary recognized the importance of being at Jesus’ feet taking in everything He said and being in His presence. She sat at His feet, but Martha was distracted and busy with preparations. It wasn’t that the preparations were a bad thing, but at that present time, it wasn’t the most important thing or the main thing. The truth is…. we would all want to make preparations for Jesus if He were to come to our homes, but being in His presence and hearing the word of life is the most important thing at all times.
The challenge in our busy lives is not to be distracted by things that are good or seem good for us. It could be good for others, just not for you.
