I pray to our Father in Heavens to continue blessing you wherever you are and whatever you are involved in. I pray that you put your priorities right. First things first. I pray that you are guided by the Holy Spirit how to practice the important priorities in your life and all I pray in the name of Jesus Christ, amen!
Do you remember the story of Martha and Mary (the sisters of Lazarus, yes, the one who was raised from the dead!)? When the Lord visited their house Mary just sat at His feet and listen to Him when Martha got busy in the kitchen to cook the best for the special visitors. Martha’s attitude was however, about complaining:
“She came to him and asked, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!” “Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “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 away from her.”
I understand as I read and meditate on this event that both Martha and Mary were involved in something important. At first, the mess of Martha was not the fact that she was cooking than being with the Lord; it was her attitude not to finish her job and be content with what she could offer but to go and complain about Mary.
In life there are important things connected with body, soul and spirit – the three elements of our nature. We can be jailed however within our busyness and forget what it is the most important. As we need to feed our bodies and do our daily things, we need to feed our spirit before anything else.
Where is the balance among all things to be done? When we start our day with the Lord as our first priority and lay all concerns and plans on His feet, then we can go on with other business. We will be successful. When we need to do something within the day or take a decision, let’s give it first to the Lord, listen His guidance and go on and do it.
We need to remember that the balance relies not on what it is urgent but on what it is important. The Lord should be the number one in our life and day!
