Bible Bent Busy Bodies

Jesus is not impressed with our Bible knowledge nor with our ability to quote the scriptures chapter and verse. What matters to Him is that we spend time with Him. We read in Luke 10 about Martha and Mary, two sisters. Jesus came to their house and Mary sat at the feet of Jesus, LISTENING to Him. Martha came to Jesus and said:”Lord, why don't you tell Mary to come and help me with the preparations?” And Jesus said to he:”Martha, Martha, you are concerned about many things but Mary has chosen the best,” and that is to sit at the feet of Jesus.
Many people are concerned about running around, working for God, evangelizing. Jesus said about some of these people:”You go over land and sea to make one proselyte and when you have found him you make him twice as ripe for hell as you are yourselves.”
What matters to Jesus is not our Bible knowledge or how busy we are FOR Him but whether we spend time WITH Him, whether we LISTEN to Him, whether we treasure Him and DO what is pleasing to Him. Do you spend time with Jesus or are you TOO BUSY with other things?

May Jesus bless you.
