We are busy with work, family, friends, volunteer efforts, and the list goes on. Although all of these things have purpose and value in our lives, the business they create can choke out God’s intended blessings. God wants us to take the time to enjoy life and bask in His glory:
Luke 10:38-42 (NKJV), “Now it happened as they went that He entered a certain village; and a certain woman named Martha welcomed Him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus’ feet and heard His word. But Martha was distracted with much serving, and she approached Him and said, “Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Therefore tell her to help me.” And Jesus answered and said to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her.”
Don’t forget to take a moment to relax, listen, and enjoy God’s given moments, because before we know it they are gone.
