THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
USE THIS “TIME-OUT” WISELY MY FRIENDS, MAKE TIME FOR JESUS, TODAY…..
WE can learn a lot from the story of Jesus’ visit to the home of Martha and Mary. While Martha busied herself preparing a meal, Mary sat at Jesus’ feet listening to what He was teaching. When Martha realized that Mary wasn’t helping her, she marched over, interrupted Jesus, and said, “Lord, this isn’t FAIR. I’m in here doing all the work and she just SITS here!” Jesus’ reply must have stunned her: “Martha, you’re STRESSED OUT about so many DIFFERENT things. Only one thing REALLY matters, and Mary has chosen what’s BEST.” In effect, Jesus was telling Martha to slow down and ENJOY the moment with HIM. He could easily be saying the same thing to ALL OF US today!
I believe that this pandemic has given the World, a MUCH needed “TIME-OUT” to assess what is REALLY important in our lives, and what is NOT so much important. Some of us are figuring out for the first time, that MONEY is only PAPER, AND here on earth the only “rights” you have, are the ones that someone else GIVES you, and when it’s all said and done, JESUS holds ALL the keys to LIFE, LIBERTY and HAPPINESS. But most importantly, He holds the key to ETERNAL life. Use this “TIME-OUT” wisely my friends, make time for Jesus TODAY.
“There is really only one thing worth being concerned about. Mary has discovered it—and I won’t take it away from her!”
Luke 10:42, TLB
