In Luke 10:38-42, Jesus gives us insight into the lives and home of Mary and Martha. Martha was a good host and welcomed Jesus into her house but she became overly occupied and too busy. Been too busy caused her to become distracted. She ended up accusing Jesus of not caring and blames her sister Mary for not helping.

Martha didn’t realize that the Miracle Worker, Jesus, was right there to multiply the food she was trying to serve Him and His disciples. She could have been sitting at the feet of Jesus and hearing His Word, like Mary. He finally said to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things but one thing is needed”.

The one thing, sitting at the feet of Jesus and hearing His Word, would take care of the many things she was worried about.

You might be in that place today like Martha. Perhaps you are worried and troubled about many things. I encourage you to get your focus back. It comes by putting your attention on Jesus and His Word. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God (Romans 10:17).

Worry, on the other hand is focusing and meditating on the lies of the devil. Worry is ministering fear to your spirit. So get out of worry. Don’t accuse Jesus of not caring for you and stop blaming everyone else for not helping you.

Take responsibility for your life. Stop being overly occupied and too busy. Get quiet. Sit at the feet of Jesus and hear His Word. That one thing, will take care of the many things. Forgive everyone of everything.

Perspective will begin to come. Answers will come. Light will come. Direction will come. The peace of God which surpasses all understanding will guard your heart and mind. Jesus will take care of everything. You are loved by Jesus. Welcome Him into your house today and let Him take care of everything. Cast all your cares upon Him, for He cares for you (1 Peter 5:7).


Lord Jesus, thank You for loving me. I hand over all my cares, worries and concerns to You today because You care for me. 

In Him
