Today's sermon was once again delivered by our deacon. He focused on the story of Martha and Mary (Luke 10:38-42)
Now as they went on their way, he entered a certain village, where a woman named Martha welcomed him into her home. She had a sister named Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet and listened to what he was saying. 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.’Rick said that we all have our Martha moments when we feel that someone is dumping on us, or times when we get too busy, and we all have to stop and take the time to listen to God. By keeping his sermon simple and short, he was able to get this point across, that we always have the time to listen to the Lord. He is always ready to give us real quality time. Why do we seem to prefer listen to the distractions?
The "Quality Time Tango" is something that requires two fully focused particiants. In my case, I know which partner will be the clumsy one.
