St. Francis of Assisi
As they continued their journey Jesus entered a village where a woman whose name was Martha welcomed him. She had a sister named Mary (who) sat beside the Lord at his feet listening to him speak. Martha, burdened with much serving, came to him and said, "Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me by myself to do the serving? Tell her to help me." The Lord said to her in reply, "Martha, Martha, you are anxious and worried about many things. There is need of only one thing. Mary has chosen the better part and it will not be taken from her" (Luke 10: 38-42).
Jesus is telling us just how important prayer and time with Him is. Doing many things is good but if we don’t have Christ it isn’t the “best path” we could be on. The more time we spend with Christ in prayer the better our service will be. Give it a try and you’ll see.
Holy Spirit, remind me to talk with Jesus every day.
