A New Challenge *Thanks to my sister in law! :)

So, I was sitting here trying to think of a fun thing to do for the announcements for my church this week, I got onto my face book account. My sister in law's status read "trying to have a Mary heart in a Martha world. Confused?? Check out Luke 10:38-42." Of course I was confused, so to the bible I went and found this.....

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, 42but only one thing is needed.[a] Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her."

So, this week I challenge all of you to be a little more like Mary. Remind yourself to let go of petty distractions of the day and focus on the eternal perspective.
