From this morning’s gospel- “But Martha was distracted by her many tasks; so she came to him and asked, ‘Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to do all the work by myself? Tell her then to help me.’ But the Lord answered her, ‘Martha, Martha, you are worried and distracted by many things; there is need of only one thing. Mary has chosen the better part, which will not be taken away from her.’”
I wonder what has distracted you today? So far I’ve been distracted by the mess in the kitchen, the laundry, and a stack of non urgent emails- and it’s not yet 9!
Let’s pray for wisdom and guidance so that we also may choose ‘the better part’ – not distracted by unnecessary things but offering the attention and intentions of our hearts and minds to God’s loving purposes in our lives today. May God bless you this morning x
