Choosing the Better Part
Jesus chastises Martha in the gospel today for being “anxious and worried about many things” while there is “need of only one thing.” We too often get swept up in doing so many good things that wind up worn out and not fulfilled. Normally it’s not that we’re doing bad things, just like serving was not a bad thing for Martha to be doing. However, when we get too busy with worldly things we can tend to miss the one thing that is important.
If someone looked at your calendar, would they be able to tell the one thing that matters most in your life? Most in importantly, would that one thing be God?
