“But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me.
And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things:
But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her. “-Luke 10:40-42
Here in above incident, we see one common thing in Martha and Mary, they both were serving Lord Jesus. Martha was busy preparing food for Jesus, but Mary was at the feet of Jesus.
Jesus was pleased with Mary, because what she chose was correct. She was at the feet of God, who had created heaven and earth. But Martha didn’t have that revelation. Martha even accused Jesus for not sending, Mary to kitchen, to help her.
Hence Jesus quoted above verse, Calling Martha Martha..
Even we may be busy whole day in our own business and work. We think we are regular church goers, praying person, and we will be caught up in his coming.
Being at the feet of Jesus Christ in one sense can be compared to meditating the word of God all time, where ever we may be. But very often we forget to meditate the word of God.
Let God give us grace to meditate in His word.
“Thy word is very pure: therefore thy servant loveth it.” – Psa 119:140
