I have called upon thee, for thou wilt hear me, O God: incline thine ear unto me, and hear my speech.

Mary And Martha

Thanks and praise to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
In the travels of Jesus throughout the land one stop was at a house where two sisters lived. In the Bibles telling of this Jesus reemphasizes the importance of seeking the Kingdom of God first as in Matthew 6:33: "But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." Jesus tells Martha that she is worried about many things that she shouldn't be because there is only one thing that is needful. That would be hearing the Word of God and seeking the Kingdom of God above all else. We all get so caught up in our responsibilities we have here on earth but we need not worry about them. This is not to say neglect them, only to say don't be troubled by them. All we need to be concerned with is Jesus Christ first and foremost. The rest will come in Gods time.

Matthew 6:38-42
38: Now it came to pass, as they went, that he entered into a certain village: and a certain woman named Martha received him into her house.
39: And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus' feet, and heard his word.
40: But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me.
41: And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things:
42: But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.
