Jesus entered a village where a woman whose name was Martha welcomed him. She had a sister named Mary who sat beside the Lord at his feet listening to him speak. Martha, burdened with much serving, came to him and said, “Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me by myself to do the serving? Tell her to help me.” The Lord said to her in reply, “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and worried about many things. There is need of only one thing. Mary has chosen the better part and it will not be taken from her.”
Mary chose to sit at the feet of Jesus instead of worrying about the world. Which part have you chosen? Do you worry needlessly or leave your problems at the feet of Jesus? The choice is yours, make it carefully.
Prayer: Jesus, I choose to sit at your feet rather than the worlds. Help me to always leave my problems with you. In your holy name, I ask for this grace, Amen.
Holy is the Lord our God.
