Seeking Him Podcast

One Thing Is Needed

Woman: “My husband gets up every morning and spends time reading the Bible. I try to do that too, but I keep thinking of everything I have to get done. Sometimes I just wish he would put his Bible down and just give me some help.”

Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: That lady sounds a little bit like Martha in the gospels. Martha was working hard in the kitchen getting ready to feed Jesus and His disciples. And there her sister Mary was, sitting at the feet of Jesus. When Martha complained, Jesus said, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her.”

Like Martha, you probably have a pile of work in front of you. Serving others is good and important, but really only one thing is absolutely necessary. Have you spent time at the feet of Jesus today—connecting with Him through His Word and prayer?
