Luke 10:38-42

The biggest room in my house is the room for improvement.  In my mind, in almost everything I do, I can do more and I can do better. My problem is that I often feel this way about too many things that really don’t matter very much.

Luke’s next unique but familiar incident in Jesus’ life is at Martha’s house. Her sister, Mary, was there.  Mary and Martha’s rooms for improvement were not the same.  

Jesus’ simple words to Martha are reminders to all of us that some of the important things we do are of more value than others.  Knowing Jesus means that we strive to give first place to the most important things in our lives.

Nothing is more important than sitting at the feet of Jesus!
