Time to Be With Jesus | Your Daily Devotion | May 12

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”

Matthew 11:28

There’s a passage I love in the Bible where two women, Mary and Martha are preparing for Jesus to arrive. However, they each handle His arrival differently. Martha was the one who was preparing the house and Mary was sitting at the feet of Jesus listening to Him.

Jesus told Martha, “you are worried and upset about many things, but few things are needed—or indeed only one.”

Martha may have been the one who was being productive…but she was missing out on her purpose.  What Martha was doing was helpful…but it wasn’t holy.

You only have one purpose and it is Jesus: To love Jesus. To be with Jesus. To show others Jesus.
