Whats First On Your To-Do List

Simply saying your to busy is not an answer to why you don’t spend time with God.


“My dear Martha you are worried and upset over all these details! There is only one thing worth being concerned about.  Mary has discovered it, and it will not be taken away from her.” (Luke 10:41,42)


This is an amazing verse to me because we worry so much about the small stuff in life that we tend to forget what is really important.  The peace that surpasses all understanding will not be taken away from you as long as your main concern is God and not this world.  We never have enough time in life and we always seem to run out of day before we do projects but we need to get our priorities straight.  We are all called to be ministers whether that is in your job or in front of a congregation but we can’t do that unless we make our main concern God.  We can all do our parts to have a closer relationship with God by spending just a few minutes a day in your Bible, praying or just being in God’s presents with no other distractions.



Our lives are full of distraction from the priorities we have set to meet each day.  Stress affects even our youngest members of modern society.  We all have places to be, things to do, and expectations to meet.  One day, Martha and her sister Mary were busy with their daily duties when Jesus and a dozen or more of his closest friends decided to drop in unexpectedly!  For Martha, chaos ensued, but for her sister Mary, it marked a special day in her life. Sometimes our busy day can be faced with a “Divine Appointment.”  Martha was too busy and worried to see the blessing that walked through her door on this day.  Mary recognized the opportunity before her and took full advantage of the Lord’s presence.  When we are faced with a divine appointment, we have a choice to make.  You can treat it as an inconvenience or embrace it as a blessing.  After Martha complained about her sister to Jesus, he explained that Mary had chosen that good portion.  Divine appointments should never be avoided because they yield blessings that will never be taken away.
