Martha, Is That You?

Recently I found a blog, Raising Homemakers, and it is a gem! I really enjoy the post and the applicable instruction. Her posts challenge and encourage me to grow in being a better wife and mother.

After reading, I often find myself asking, “ Are you being Martha or Mary?”. Are you busy,  too busy maintaining  and missing opportunities to seed godly principles into your children. Jesus said, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and upset about many things, but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken from her.” She chose Christ. She chose to make him priority.

“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” Matthew 6:33 The most effective way to have peace and joy in your home is to sit at Christ’s feet.  Allow his instruction to shape every area of your life and you will be satisfied and successful.

Preparing for Resurrection Sunday do not allow celebrations overshadow the sacrifice. Take time sit at the Master’s feet and savor his presence.  It will be more rewarding than anything we can plan.
