The story of Mary and Martha has much to teach us. How like Martha most of us are. We work hard to serve the Lord, and what we do for the Lord is absolutely necessary, but wouldn’t it make our service for Him easier and more fruitful if we put first things first? If we aren’t careful, busyness will crowd out that essential time we need with the Lord. Even good things, like serving the Lord, can wrongly crowd out the necessary thing.
