"Anxious and worried about many things"
It is therefore easy to be anxious and worried about many things.
It is therefore critically important for us to hear the words spoken by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to Martha in one of the Gospels provided for today (Luke 10:38-42):
you are anxious and worried about many things.
There is need of only one thing.
It is easy to be anxious and worried.
It is a matter of life and death - spiritually and otherwise - for us to keep our focus and our priorities clear.
Like Martha's sister Mary, may we stay close to Jesus, so that He may teach us how to live in this world and to live forever in the next.
