Looking at the world today, we discuss the upheaval, the change, and how with it all comes with increasing challenges. We remind listeners that we can look at adversity in either of two ways 1) at how it’s destroying our lives, or 2) how much we’re growing and changing from it.

In Luke Chapter 10, we read the story of Mary and Martha. What we come to learn from the story is that one sister made a better choice than the other.

Mary chose to sit at the feet of Jesus. She knew that He was the most important part of her life, and so she prioritized Him before anything else. 

Martha on the other hand was the one who invited Jesus into her home. She was excited to have Him, and eager to serve. But here’s the thing, when I read that she was distracted by all of the preparations or too busy serving to sit at his feet, I’m reminded of my own life, and the times I take on too much. I realize that even those who love Jesus forget how important it is to slow down and to sit at His feet.

This quarantine life has helped me to do that–to slow down, to cut back, and to get my priorities straight. It’s given me the opportunity to examine what’s really important in life and to start removing those things that are not.
