The Mary Strategy

17 Jan

The Mary Strategy…

In the Gospels it says of Martha and Mary, Mary chose the better part. Now it doesn’t say that Martha chose the worst part, just that Mary chose the better part.

The thing is, you don’t have to choose the worst part; that will just happen. You don’t have to choose a life of distractions, problems, busyness, or losing sight of God; that will just happen.

It will happen because you didn’t choose anything. You have to choose the better part like Mary chose the better part. If you don’t, then many other things will pull you, divide you, distract you, and will squeeze out time with God. Martha was all over the place, but Mary chose the better part.

So, if you don’t choose, you will be all over the place, too. You will be dragged all over. Do you want the better part? Stop being dragged. You are going to have to choose time with God and make it stick, commit to it, make it something that cannot be shaken. The good things of God don’t just come, they are chosen.

Teach me your way, LORD, that I may rely on your faithfulness; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name. Psalm 86:11

Make it your number one joy and aim today to dwell in God’s presence. The world is here but choose the better way, your time with Messiah.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
