“Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, but few things are needed—or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”
– Luke 10:41-42 (NIV)

When Jesus came to the home of Martha and Mary, Martha was busy cleaning the place up while Mary was simply sitting at Jesus feet and listening. Martha tries to get Jesus to correct Mary, but Jesus surprises Martha by saying that busyness is not the best choice when it comes to a relationship with God. Make sure that you are not doing so much FOR God that you miss being WITH God.
