Many Things vs One Thing

60. Many Things vs One Thing

I bet we can all relate to Martha. How many times have we had the experience of doing work when others, rather than helping, are sitting around and enjoying themselves? It can make us resentful can’t it?

Well, Jesus puts responsibility back on our shoulders. Our state of being is up to us.

Earlier we looked at a passage where Jesus said, “let your speech be yea yea or nea nea, and whatsoever is more than that is of evil.” Jesus’ point was, don’t be split, be whole and of one spirit.

If you do not want to serve, stop serving. Or else serve and drop the resentment. But don’t serve and be resentful. Then you’re not taking care of the one thing that is needful: your spirit.
