Good morning, my brothers and sisters in Christ.
Now, it happened as they went that He entered a certain village, and a certain woman named Martha welcomed Him into her house. 39 And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at [a]Jesus’ feet and heard His word. 40 But Martha was distracted with much serving, and she approached Him and said, “Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Therefore, tell her to help me.”
41 And [b]Jesus answered and said to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. 42 But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her.”
He also emphasized the importance of developing a relationship with one's Creator through reading the Scriptures and prayer, criticizing the lack of focus on this aspect in many modern channels discussing Scripture.
Service to Jesus: Martha's Example Time 0:00
Using the example of Martha from Luke 10:40, Jared emphasized that while the service started by Martha was driven by love for Jesus, it eventually deteriorated into resentment and envy due to her lack of time to spend with Him.
Discussion on Luke 10:38-40's Lesson Time 4:32
Jared led a discussion on Luke, chapter 10, verses 38-42, which tells the story of Martha welcoming Jesus into her house and becoming distracted with serving while her sister Mary sat at Jesus' feet and listened to him. Jared emphasized that Martha was not rebuked for serving but for complaining and being distracted. He clarified that serving should be done to facilitate the spread of the Gospel, not to the detriment of establishing a relationship with one's Creator. The group reflected on the story's lesson, which applies to everyone, and the importance of developing a relationship with their Creator.
Religion and Spirituality in Modern Discourse Time 9:40
Jared emphasized the importance of developing a relationship with one's Creator through reading the Scriptures and prayer. He criticized the lack of focus on this aspect in many modern channels discussing Scripture. Jared encouraged quality over quantity in followers, citing Jesus's example of starting with 12 disciples. He closed the meeting with a prayer acknowledging and praising the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
In Christ, love Jared W. Campbell
