"A sitting silently at the feet of Jesus is of more worth than all the clatter of Martha’s dishes." - Charles Spurgeon
I read this on Twitter this week. It's not the first time I've seen it, and not the first time I've needed to hear it. I'm starting to take Sabbath seriously. Finding that resting in the LORD is the only way to accomplish anything.
So here's to doing less dishes this weekend and abiding more! Will you join me?
"Now as they went on their way, Jesus entered a village. And a woman named Martha welcomed him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord's feet and listened to his teaching. But Martha was distracted with much serving. And she went up to him and said, “Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her then to help me.” But the Lord answered her, “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things, but one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the good portion, which will not be taken away from her.” (Luke 10:38-42)
