We live in a fast-paced society. We can be pulled in so many directions, and if we aren't careful we can become overworked, overburdened, & overstressed. The peace and order we long for is replaced by the chaos and demands of our lives. This is not only true for us, it has always been true, as our story of Mary and Martha reveals. Within the pages of this story, we find the answer to life's overwhelming moments. It is found at the foot of the cross with our Lord and Savior, Jesus. We are challenged by Jesus to choose the one thing needful; to rest in His presence and draw ever closer to Him.
