Do you have a constant to do list running in your head? You are not alone. We are created here on earth to love and help each other. When we do, great joy and friendship appear in our lives. In this episode, Ginger and Maribeth discuss the fear of asking for help and the real struggle to be perfect and do everything ourselves.
Luke 10: 38-42 – Martha and Mary’s story is a great example of how Jesus reminds us not to be distracted or busy that we do not prioritize time out for him. Martha continues to work while Mary stops what she’s doing to serve Jesus upon his arrival. He wants us to serve him before all others.
- 38 As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him. 39 She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said. 40 But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!” 41 “Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, 42 but few things are needed—or indeed only one.[f] Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”
Psalm 121- We want to look to God for help and become aware when he does bring help through other people.
- 1 I lift up my eyes to the mountains—where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.
