Do not be distracted, instead let your days be adorned with the fragrance of worship, and focus your attention and keep your eyes firmly fixed on Jesus.
What Does The Bible Say
“And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus’ feet and heard His word. But Martha was distracted with much serving, and she approached Him and said, “Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Therefore tell her to help me.” And Jesus answered and said to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her.“ Psalm 105:4
There’s an ever-present call to prioritize, to discern what truly matters. Luke 10:39-42 tenderly reminds us of the essential choice – to embrace the better part, to fix our gaze unwaveringly on the One who deserves our undivided attention.
Picture the scene: a gathering, a flurry of activities, and at the center, two sisters – Martha and Mary. Martha, diligently serving; Mary, seated at the feet of Jesus, enraptured by His presence. In this snapshot, you will see the contrast between distraction and devotion, between worldly demands and worshipful surrender.
The world around you, with its incessant noise, beckons you to divide your attention, to prioritize tasks over intimacy with your Creator. But as Mary chose, you too can choose the better part. You can cast aside the distractions that vie for your focus and come to the feet of Jesus, where worship transforms into an intimate exchange.
The beauty lies in the simplicity of this choice – to sit at His feet, to listen, to adore. In your worship, you align your heart with heaven’s rhythm, and you draw closer to the One who knows you intimately. It’s not about the quantity of tasks completed, but the quality of connection nurtured.
When life’s demands knock at your door, inviting you to be entangled in the chaos, remember Mary’s posture. Even in a world that values busyness, your time spent in worship is never wasted. It’s an investment into your soul, a renewal of your spirit, and an offering of love to the One who gave all for you.
May your days be adorned with the fragrance of worship, and may your focus be steadfast, firmly fixed on the One who invites you to choose the better part.
