“Martha [overly occupied and too busy] was distracted with much serving; and she came up to Him and said, Lord, is it nothing to You that my sister has left me to serve alone?…Lord replied to her by saying, Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things; There is need of only one or but a few things. Mary has chosen the good portion...” Luke 10:40-42a AMP italics and emphasis mine
When we were kids we used to play with magnifying lenses in the sun; by focusing a beam of sunlight into a sharp ray on the grass or dry paper a fire flame bursts. We knew that no matter how bright the sun is and how dry the grass or paper is, if the beam is not correctly focused…no fire will ensue! Today we have good people focusing on too many things hence no fire!
