One Thing

Beth Jones

"Jesus answered and said to her, 'Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed…'" Luke 10:41-42, NKJV

Ever felt like a Martha? Are you a Type A personality? Busy and compelled to serve? Feel obligated to coordinate, organize and take care of details? Hello, Martha! These are actually great qualities as long as they don't take us away from the "one thing" that is needed.

The "one thing" is time with the Lord. Spending time with Jesus – hearing His voice, listening to His Word and just being with Him is the one thing that is needed in our lives.

Here's the story from Luke 10.

Now it happened as they went that He entered a certain village; and a certain woman named Martha welcomed Him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus' feet and heard His word. But Martha was distracted with much serving, and she approached Him and said, "Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Therefore tell her to help me." And Jesus answered and said to her, "Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her." (Luke 10:38-42, NKJV)

Perhaps, we all need to be more like Mary. She was able to slow down, sit still and find contentment sitting at Jesus' feet. This is something that some of us have to do intentionally! Most of us live busy lives and we have to be purposeful about spending time with the Lord. We have to find those pockets of time when we can sit with Him for a while.

This "one thing" is even more needful when we are feeling the most pressure on our schedule and when we think we have the least amount of discretionary time. Ironically, once we slow down and listen to the Lord, we come away from times with Him with a renewed sense of peace, joy and energy – just what we need to take care of all the duties, demands and "to-do" lists!

This week be reminded: There are many things clamoring for our attention and time, but one thing is needed. There are many distractions, cares and to-do lists, but one thing is needed. Time with Jesus is needed! Let's be proactive in finding that time every day this week.

Say This: "Father, in the midst of all the busyness, distraction and demands I feel in my life, help me to set aside time to sit with Jesus – time to read and listen to His Word, time to sit still and slow down long enough to hear His voice. Help me to remember that although other things might be important only 'one thing' is needed. In Jesus' Name. Amen."
