Only one thing is needed

Only one thing is needed

Luke 10: 38-42 “38 As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him. 39 She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said.40 But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!” 41 “Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, 42 but few things are needed—or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”

Jesus tells Martha there is only one thing he needs.

She had opened her home.

She was making the preparations that had to be made. Food. A place to sleep. Etc.

If all you are doing, no matter how important or needed is causing you to be worried and upset then why are you still doing them?

Do you think Jesus is wanting you to be stressed out with what you think He is asking of you?

He actually only needs one thing.

An undistracted and submitted heart.

You can open your home but not your heart because you have misunderstood what he is looking for.

Are you doing commissioned work?

Are you living a commissioned life?

Sit awhile, listen and ponder.
