The Best of the Portals of Prayer

Read: Luke 10:38-42 / Psalm 26

“Martha, Martha, you are anxious about many things, but one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the good portion, which will not be taken away from her.”

Luke 10:41-42

One Thing is Needed

No one is able to please the Lord just by putting out great effort and sacrifice. So often we measure a person’s dedication by how busy that person looks. But God isn’t looking for merely busy people. He desires that we glorify His name. The Lord commanded us to be about our daily business. So perhaps we go into the kitchen and we wash dishes, scrub pots and pans, and mop the floor. We check our watches and see that we have put in a full day of work. Have we served God? YES!
We review our daily activity. We have done what we ought, but did we take time to also read God’s Word? And did we thank Him for His grace in providing eternal salvation for us in His Son, Jesus? We can certainly serve God in our daily “doings” – but we should also never forget to simply thank Him for His grace, as we seek to live to his glory.
Holy father, forgive us for so often focusing on the immediate tasks at hand and overlooking daily opportunities to grow in Your grace and knowledge in Jesus Christ. Amen.
