Are you a Martha Tending to the Good and Neglecting the Best?


Luke Chapter 10 
Are you a Martha?

♦ Slice of Life in the Life of Jesus

Luke 10:38
   Now it came to pass, as they went, that
   he entered into a certain village: 
    and a certain woman named Martha
   received him into her house.
   And she had a sister called Mary,
   which also sat at Jesus' feet, and
   heard his word. But Martha was
   cumbered about much serving, and
   came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou
   not care that my sister hath left me to
   serve alone? Bid her therefore that she
   help me. And Jesus answered and said
   unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful 
   and troubled about many things: But one
   thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen
   that good part, which shall not be 
   taken away from her.

Matthew 6:34 
   Take therefore no thought for the morrow:
   for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself.
   Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

     lean not unto thine own understanding.

Matthew 6:34 
   Take therefore no thought for the morrow:
   for the morrow shall take thought for the things
   of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
♦ The GOOD things in life are the
   enemy to the BEST things in life."

♦  Deuteronomy 8:3
    And he humbled thee, and suffered thee
    to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which
    thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know;
    that he might make thee know that man doth
    not live by bread only, but by every word
    that proceedeth out of the mouth of the
    LORD doth man live.

But seek ye first the kingdom

Titus 3: 5-7
   Not by works of righteousness which we have done, 
   but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing
   of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;
   Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour;
   That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs
   according to the hope of eternal life.
