What Is Good Can Distract Us From What Is Better

Listen to Sermon [MP3 15.5 MB]

A woman named Martha opened her home to him.  She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said.  But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made.  She came to him and asked,  “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself?  Tell her to help me!”  “Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, but only one thing is needed.  Mary has chosen what is better and it will not be taken away from her.”  (Luke 10:38-41)

Jesus wants us to listen to Him first before we start serving Him.  (Proverbs 1:5)

But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness.  (Matthew 6:33)

Don’t let your work for God be more important than your relationship with God.  (John 15:5)
An anxious heart weighs a man down, but a kind word cheers him up.  (Proverbs 12:25)

God values your attitudes more than your actions.  (Philippians 2:3, 5,14)

And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.  Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace.  (Colossians 3:14-15)
