Luke 10…Don’t be anxious

"But Martha was distracted with much serving..." Luke 10:40

Martha was worried about many things but Mary was concerned about Jesus. In her anxiety, Martha goes to Jesus in prayer with a complaint against her sister. It is in this time of prayer that Jesus responds to her in the same way He responds to us if we would follow the example of Martha and the exhortation of Scripture to let our anxiety remind us to pray, we would find there is only one thing needed and His Name is Jesus. 

We must keep our focus on Him. He is our purpose and pursuit. Anxiety only reminds us we need to pray and get our minds back on Christ and not on simply serving Him. He wants us, not our service.
