What do you choose, Quality Time or Worry Over Details?

Mary & Martha’s story has been one of my favorite stories in the Bible. Mary discovered that quality time with Jesus was much better than making a fuss over a perfect dinner party. This story tells us how meaningful our relationship is with Jesus, including family, friends, and everyone we meet—quality time talking, listening, spending time together, not trying to impress or show off—having authentic, lasting relationships instead of picture-perfect gathering!

Our church Family Feeding the homeless Christmas Morning 2021

“As Jesus and the disciples continued on their way to Jerusalem, they came to a certain village where a woman named Martha welcomed him into her home. Her sister, Mary, sat at the Lord’s feet, listening to what he taught. But Martha was distracted by the big dinner she was preparing. She came to Jesus and said, “Lord, doesn’t it seem unfair to you that my sister just sits here while I do all the work? Tell her to come and help me.” But the Lord said to her, “My dear Martha, you are worried and upset over all these details! There is only one thing worth being concerned about. Mary has discovered it, and it will not be taken away from her.””
‭‭Luke‬ ‭10:38-42‬ ‭NLT‬‬
