The Good Part

Lk 10:38 Now it came to pass, as they went, that He entered into a certain village: and a certain woman named Martha received Him into her house.
:39 And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus' feet, and heard His word.
:40 But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to Him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me.
:41 And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things:
:42 But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.

Martha was so busy doing things for the Lord that she didn't find time to spend with Him. That doesn't mean that Mary didn't serve too. She helped Martha till Jesus began to talk. She knew that the dishes , etc could wait for a little while till Jesus was finished talking.

Pr 3:6 In all thy ways acknowledge Him; and He shall direct thy paths.

This describes our walk with God. Our part is to stop and acknowledge Him, and THEN He will direct our path. We need to consult Him about our decisions, thoughts, words and the way we respond to people and things.

In this way we can be sure that we are doing the best part. Have you acknowledged Him today?
