Martha had company arriving. There was food to prepare. Cleaning to be done. Shopping to complete.
It's easy to get caught up in all the "To Do's" of the Christmas season.
To feel overwhelmed with all the cleaning, shopping, wrapping, baking, entertaining, visiting, etc, etc, etc that "needs" to be done during this time of year.
Imagine Jesus leaning close, looking patiently into your eyes, and telling you.. "You are worried and upset about many things, but few things are needed - or indeed only one. Chose what is better, and it will not be taken from you."
Rest in Him. Take time from your busy schedule to sit quietly in His presence. Read His Word. Talk with Him. Remember what the season is really about.
Renew and refresh your soul.
