One thing is necessary…

“But the Lord answered her, “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things, but one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the good portion, which will not be taken away from her.”

Luke‬ ‭10:41-42‬ ‭ESV‬‬


Choose the ONE thing over the many.


At a time where people, especially believers seem to be doing ‘many’ things. Where society implicitly pressurises us to be consumed with ‘many’ things. Where even fellow believers may report you as ‘less active’ or ‘quieter than usual’. ONE thing is necessary, and that is to sit at the feet of Jesus.


The ‘many’ anxieties pale in comparison to the comfort of His presence. The many activities pale in comparison to the singular act of spending time with God.

I am reminded of my memory verse from last month, that “in the multitude of my anxieties within me, his comforts are my delight” (Psalm 94:19).

Whenever I feel overwhelmed with the ‘many’…I’m reminded that only ONE thing is necessary. Be reminded too! 😊
