I’ve been asking so many questions lately, learning a lot too, but I often feel that no amount of learning will matter if I lose my desire to know Jesus. Sure, these questions and this seeking pursues the Savior, but if I lose my relational hunger for Him, I have lost infinitely more than I have gained in head knowledge.
I suppose I have become somewhat like Martha in Luke chapter 10. My mind flitters about. It can become distracted, like Martha was. I become “worried and upset about many things,” when “only one thing is needed.” Martha’s sister, Mary, understood that what was needed was to sit at Jesus’ feet. She chose what was better, and it would “not be taken away from her.”
I must stop seeking the good in place of the best. If I replace my relationship with Jesus for some cheap sense of self-righteousness based in my knowledge of Him, I have failed.
May I never forsake my love for and communion with You, Lord Jesus.
May I come to You, and never leave that place of rest at Your feet.
