Luke 10:38-42 NIV
As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him. [39] She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said. [40] But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!” [41] “Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, [42] but few things are needed—or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”

Be aware of distractions…
Be aware of the distractions which steal away our time with God, good though they might be. Like Martha and Mary, sometimes we have important decisions to make as to what to prioritise.

Father, keep me alert to the distractions today that will stop me from listening to you and doing your will.
