Hey fam(optional: ily),
As I write this on a Friday afternoon, it’s quite clear that I wasn’t ready to post this week. College is hard. Work is exhausting. Newspapers have deadlines. Things are busier than usual. For those who haven’t felt that yet, it’s coming. For those that have, you understand.
So, in light of being too busy to post, I thought I’d share something from the word that can relate.
Now as they went on their way, Jesus entered a village. And a woman named Martha welcomed him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet and listened to his teaching. But Martha was distracted with much serving. And she went up to him and said, “Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her then to help me.” But the Lord answered her, “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things, but one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the good portion, which will not be taken away from her.
While I won’t analyze this as I usually do, I want to encourage you all to take some time to first read the text a couple times, understand the context, see what’s going on, study it more, and then finally see how that applies to you. Be careful to not jump immediately to the application. Feel free to share what you think in the comments of this post.
We’ll talk about it next week.
