Verse(s): 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.” But the Lord answered her, “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things, but one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the good portion, which will not be taken away from her.”
Insight: Doers and people who love serving have a hard time relaxing. As disciples of Christ, doing is an integral part of who we are because the love of God in us triggers the desire to love and serve others. However, we must first need to BE in Christ so that we can experience Him on a daily basis and have the cup full in order to pour into others.
Prayer: Dear Jesus, thank you for showing me that before I can DO I first need to BE. Just as you spent time with the Father, remind me to also spend time with you so that I can better reflect your character. In Your Name, Amen.
