'ONE THING IS NEEDFUL'



"But one thing is needful: and Mary has chosen that good part which shall not be taken away from her" - Luke 10:42
.
Mary and Martha typifies two types of believers in their approach to the things of God. Martha was cumbered and troubled about many things such as serving food and meeting the needs of Jesus but Mary was only interested in learning at Jesus' feet to learn.
.
What's your approach to the things of God and life in general? In both your private and public life, pursuit and priority; one thing is needful.
.
God is more interested in our walk with Him than our work with (for) Him. It is not your credential that matters but your credibility.
.
How much of time do you set aside to learn at His feet on daily basis? David desired a day in His court than a thousand elsewhere (Ps. 84:10). God will not judge us by our outward life but through what we do in our private life.
.
One thing is needful between your priority or pursuit. A man can be confused with many things but I'm sure he's convinced of one thing. If seeking God's first (Matt. 6:33) hasn't become your pursuit and priority, then you're not doing the needful.
.
It is good to desire what life has to give but it's best to desire the Giver. Other things can fail but choosing the path of life, the good part can never fail.
.
Have you chosen that thing that's needful or you're still bothered with the many things of life? Desire God and His kingdom (Ps 27:4) more than anything so that you can have other things added unto you and you'd have done yourself a lot good here and hereafter.
