The Good Portion
Martha did what most of us would do if we were hosting Jesus...
Martha said what most of us would say if no one was helping us...
Martha asked Jesus what most of us would have asked Jesus, "Lord, don't you care that she isn't helping me??"
And yet Jesus tells us Mary had chosen the good portion, and there is a lesson we cannot miss. It's possible for us to get so busy, so distracted, so anxious and troubled trying to do all these things for Jesus that we forget He has really invited us to first come and sit in His presence.
Let's look together at how we avoid the tyranny of "distracted doing" and instead choose the good portion of being in the presence of Jesus.
