Now as they went on their way, Jesus entered a village. And a woman named Martha welcomed him into her house.
When Jesus came through, Martha did a very admirable and worshipful thing, she invited Jesus into her home. She wanted to bless Him and minister to His needs of rest and refreshing. While starting off with good intentions like most people do, the obligation quickly became more than she could bear. It’s in these moments of frustration and overcommitment that you can start to get upset with those around you for not pitching in and helping you fulfill your obligations. While it’s possible that a good friend will help you, whether they do or not doesn’t make them responsible for your commitments. Martha became upset that Mary sat at Jesus feet while she had work to do, but it wasn’t Mary’s house and Mary didn’t do the planning or inviting. If you find yourself in a place of obligation and busy-ness while others seem to be just coasting along remember that the commitments you made yesterday are your obligations today. Just because Mary chose to worship in a different way doesn’t mean that she was lazy or wrong. Take time to think and seek His wisdom before you commit to something that could possibly leave you in a place of frustration. – Love and Blessings, Pastor Jeff
