Luke 10:41-42 41 “Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, 42 but few things are needed—or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.” (NIV)

We are to work for the furthering of God’s Kingdom.  For some of us our problem is we are so busy working we fail to spend one on one time with God.  John Wesley was a good example for us.  The busier his schedule was going to be on a given day, the earlier he arose to have his one on one time with God.  When our cars don’t have enough fuel they can’t get us to our destination.  When we fail to spend one on one time with God each and every day, we don’t have the “fuel” to work for the furthering of His Kingdom.  We need His daily instructions.  We need to hear His encouraging words each and every day. We need His love to fuel us to move forward.  We don’t have the power in and of ourselves to serve God.  We don’t have the love within and of ourselves to reach out in love to others.  Yes, we are called to work like Martha but not without first choosing the time Mary chose to be in the actual presence of God and listening to Him.
