Are we as Martha,
Busy…doing good deeds;
Our time occupied by works,
By trying to fill each need?
Running here and there,
Showing how much we care;
With no time to get on our knees,
So busy…we're caught in that snare.
While all this is good,
Still, our Lord had something to say,
Words that were meant to remind.
"Mary has chosen the best,"
"To sit at My feet and to learn,
Be taught of Me", He exclaimed.
Sometimes we place temporal things first,
While, they will soon pass away;
How much better to choose the Eternal,
Temporal or Eternal…carefully weigh.
Taught by JESUS…well-equipped,
His will, now is easy to do;
So, place first things first,
Be ready and He will send you!
