Luke 10:38, 42
Today’s Gospel contains a sentence that hit home to me: Jesus said; “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things and one thing is needful…” Sometimes I find it helpful to list all the things that I am anxious about. This can help me to contain those things which can seem overwhelming. And I feel that things are less fearful if they are named. It can also help to bring to mind the “one thing which is needful.” Mary, Martha’s sister, found that one thing. She “sat at the Lord’s feet.” We would do well to follow Mary’s example in the midst of our anxiety.
