My son is in the other room ready for my attention as I clean the toilet. Another day, another, duty, another innate object of my affection
While my son longs for me..
The parable of Martha and Mary is brought to mind.
How often we relate of course Martha with ourselves, and Jesus…well with Jesus. Obligation to Him, whether it be prayer, church, The Bible, service..
Yet what if, ‘when you do it or don’t do it, to the least of these…you do or don’t do it’ applies to this also?
What if every person you come across, is as important to Jesus…and showing them that they are so…is like setting all else aside..and deeming “this one thing necessary”….
