Sometimes, we get so caught up in ministry busyness that we forget about the most important thing – spending quality time with Jesus. Don’t let the work of the ministry overshadow your relationship with God. Remember, no amount of work can save your soul or substitute for quality time with Jesus. Your savior wants to KNOW you. That can only happen if you spend time with him. In this monologue, Arletia Mayfield dramatizes how we can miss out on what’s truly important, even when we think we are doing a good work for the Lord.
38 Now it came to pass, as they went, that he entered into a certain village: and a certain woman named Martha received him into her house.39 And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus’ feet, and heard his word.40 But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me.41 And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things:42 But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her. Luke 10:38-42 KJV
