The Sister Situation/This One Thing
Luke 10:38-39 TPT
As Jesus and the disciples continued on their journey, they came to a village where a woman welcomed Jesus into her home. Her name was Martha and she had a sister named Mary. Mary sat down attentively before the Master, absorbing every revelation he shared.
Luke 10:40 TPT
But Martha became exasperated by finishing the numerous household chores in preparation for her guests, so she interrupted Jesus and said, “Lord, don’t you think it’s unfair that my sister left me to do all the work by myself? You should tell her to get up and help me.”
Luke 10:41-42 TPT
The Lord answered her, “Martha, my beloved Martha. Why are you upset and troubled, pulled away by all these many distractions? Are they really that important? Mary has discovered the one thing most important by choosing to sit at my feet. She is undistracted, and I won’t take this privilege from her.”
Matthew 11:28-30 TPT
“Are you weary, carrying a heavy burden? Come to me. I will refresh your life, for I am your Oasis. Simply join your life with mine. Learn my ways and you’ll discover that I’m gentle, humble, easy to please. You will find refreshment and rest in me. For all that I require of you will be pleasant and easy to bear.”

Matt 6:25, 33 AMP
I tell you, stop being worried or anxious (perpetually uneasy, distracted) about your life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, as what you will wear…
Matthew 6:33-34 NLT
Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. “So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.
“Surrender your fear. Do not let anxiety rule your life. Trust the Father. The delight of his life is to find ways to give not just daily needs but his whole kingdom to you. Kingdom heirs don’t have to worry about the small stuff.”
~New American Commentary
