In Sunday school we discussed Jesus’ visit to a village where a woman named Martha welcomed Him into her home. She was initially attentive to Him but she was caught up in all of the present duties of the household, while her sister, Mary, remained focused on what Jesus was teaching. The passage notes that “Martha was distracted by her many tasks, and she came up and asked, ‘Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to serve alone? So tell her to give me a hand.'” (Luke 10:40) Jesus slowed Martha down and, while acknowledging that she was indeed frazzled, she needed to be more like her sister, who was attentive to Him and his Word. Our challenge today is that, in our busyness, we are to slow down long enough to truly listen to how God is speaking to us through His Word. It is important do more than just have Jesus in the background or the vicinity, including merely listening to Christian radio or watching a pastor preaching on television. We are to slow down and give God the proper time and attention by studying His Word during our devotional time. Here is where God can have a tremendous effect on our lives. We will truly grow and develop as we are devoted to having devotions with God’s Word. It is a time of learning and a time of growth.
