Christmas 2018 Blog Post #4

(In case you’ve missed a few posts, I am spending the month of December blogging about various Bible verses which remind us of the first Christmas and what the birth of Jesus really means to us. I’m also sharing random pictures of Christmases past.)

   While Jesus and his followers were traveling, Jesus went into a town. A woman named Martha let Jesus stay at her house. Martha had a sister named Mary, who was sitting at Jesus’ feet and listening to him teach. But Martha was busy with all the work to be done. She went in and said, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me alone to do all the work? Tell her to help me.”
   But the Lord answered her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and upset about many things. Only one thing is important. Mary has chosen the better thing, and it will never be taken away from her.” Luke 10:38-42 (New Century Version)

Doesn’t that say it all! How many of us are on a frantic rush to get everything done by Christmas? But here Jesus reminds us of the only thing that is important – spending time with Him.  
My mother's tabletop tree from 2011. If only we would have known God's plans for her, we would have spent more time with her instead of being busy all the time.
