41 And Jesus answered and said to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. 42 But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her.”
Many of us have a to-do list whether it is needed or not.
Here in the book of Luke, we see Martha trying to do everything in perfection. Her mind is completely on her to-do list, and is worried and troubled to get things done. She spends all her energy worrying about the things that are not necessary or needed at that time.
We sometimes get into the mindset of to-do list and get worried for unnecessary reasons.
While Mary chose to stay at the feet of Jesus and listen, which is very much needed at all times. Instead of worry, Mary is filled with love, peace and joy, which are needed. Jesus says, Mary has chosen the good part and will not be taken away from her.
Let us choose wisely one thing that is needed, Jesus!

So true - too often I have been Martha. My type A perfectionist personality has hindered what God wanted and could have done through me. But, praise God, he is still working on me! Thanks Esther
