Luk 10:38 Now it came to pass, as they went, that Jesus entered into a certain village: and a certain woman named Martha received him into her house.
Luk 10:40 But Martha was encumbered 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.
Luk 10:41 And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things:
Luk 10:42But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.
I've been thinking about feet lately....about the woman with the issue of blood who grasps the hem of Jesus's garment (by His feet) and gets healed by "stealing" some of His virtue. About the woman that kissed Jesus feet as she wiped them with her tears, tears of joy because of the tremendous love He had for her to forgive her all her many sins. About Jesus's feet pierced with the nails through them as He hung on the cross, weeping and dying.
Mary was close to Jesus and loved sitting at Jesus feet to hear His word. I tend to be more like Martha, and get angry when others aren't doing enough of their share of the work that needs to be done. I need to be more like Mary. "One thing is needful..." Lord help me to desire only that one thing and not be so troubled in my spirit about the things that won't amount to anything in the eternity.
How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!
