In today’s sermon we talked about the many things that can distract us from the one thing. It’s so easy to get distracted with all the things going on around us, to get caught up living in the periphery instead of focusing our lives around the one thing, Jesus.
The One Thing – Jesus
“38 As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him. 39 She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said. 40 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!”
41 “Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, 42 but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.
