Luke 10:38-42 is a story of Mary and Martha entertaining Jesus when He stopped by their home. Mary had sat with Jesus and was hanging to His every word. Martha, on the other hand was in the kitchen food prepping and cooking for all of them. With so much to do she had allowed herself to get upset because Mary hadn’t been helping. Martha went into the other room and told Jesus to tell Mary that she should be working with her. Jesus simply replied that she had to much to do and should be making time for what He has to say. More often then not we what to do so many different things that it interferes with our personal relationship with God. We can feel like there’s never ending chores or kids activities to attend to and then work on top of that. There’s a couple of different things we can do. Get rid of material items that are u needed giving us less to clean, giving more time alone with God. Make time in-between honeydew’s or errands to be in prayer. My personal favorite is praying before my day begins and throughout the day making sure that I have open communication. Whatever the case may be. Just make sure to have time set aside for our creator.
