To all those people who are very busy making progress in life and who hurry and scurry about as soon as they wake up. To those whose smartphones are always beeping and calling their attention to urgent messages and important schedules. To those who maintain 80 hour work week and who manage portfolios that never sleep. Jesus has a message for you thus “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!” “Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, but few things are needed–or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”-Matthew 10:40-42.
