“But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her”. Luke 10:42 (KJV)
In a world that is filled with uncertainty, insecurity, and hopelessness, and in a world where there are all kinds of blood-shedding, confusion, and violence in a dimension that’s never been seen before and more especially at this pandemic, it is so vitally important that our lives be anchored on what is unshakable. We must be anchored on what cannot be moved, very important. We live in a world where a lot of people, even believers are trivializing the real thing that will make them stand above the challenges of life, which is the very word of God.
Some are saying that the scripture does not say exactly what it says. Some say the Bible cannot be understood and makes all kinds of insinuations concerning the scriptures. It does not matter what you say. The truth is that a natural man cannot understand the things of the spirit of God because they are foolishness to him, neither can he know them because they are spiritually discerned (1 Corinthians 2:14). God says exactly what he means and means what he says.
Jesus entered a certain village and a certain woman named Martha received him into her house and she had a sister called Mary which also sat at Jesus’ feet and heard his Word. But Martha was going about serving, and more interested in other things other than what was most important which is; the Word of God. Martha was upset that her sister left her to do all the serving. Jesus answered her, Martha you are careful and troubled about many things, but one thing is needful. There are many things troubling you right now, there are many things challenging your life, there are many things upsetting you and there are a lot of difficulties surrounding you. But you’ve refused to acknowledge that one thing is needful, and Mary had chosen that good part which shall not be taken away from her. I encourage you to do the needful which is to give attention to God’s word.
