The good part

38. Now while they were on their way, Jesus entered a village called Bethany, and a woman named Martha welcomed Him into her home.

The good part which is to our advantage

39. She had a sister named Mary, who seated herself at the Lord’s feet and was continually listening to His teaching.

40. But Martha was very busy and distracted with all of her serving responsibilities; and she approached Him and said, Lord, is it of no concern to You that my sister has left me to do the serving alone? Tell her to help me and do her part.

41. But the Lord replied to her, Martha, Martha, you are worried and bothered and anxious about so many things;

42. but only one thing is necessary, for Mary has chosen the good part that which is to her advantage, which will not be taken away from her.
LUKE 10:38‭-‬42 AMP

In the midst of your life’s demands, where is Jesus? It is possible to lose focus on our relationship with Him, the one and only thing, the good part, that which is necessary for us even though He has promised to be with us always. Is He the One you seek? Are you seated at the master’s feet?

Related: One thing

Today, most of us are running around distracted just like Martha, serving other people because we are anxious of what they will say, we are running around distracted because we want to please them.

We are worried about people’s opinions thereby neglecting the good part, that which is necessary to our advantage.

We run around troubled about what we will eat or wear on our bodies, mulling over things that won’t live past today. Do not be anxious about your life. Matthew 6:25

We are worried and anxious about our looks; we are worried about our relationships, anxious about our jobs, academics, family. Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Philippians 4:6

We are bothered about so many things, and by that we neglect and miss out on the one and only thing, the good part. The word which is Jesus Christ.

Jesus Christ is that good part

Jesus is telling you and I today just like He told Martha, that the one and only thing necessary for us, the good part, that which is to our advantage which will not be taken away from us;

That good part is the word, which is Jesus Christ. He’s asking us to choose Him, to sit at His feet and hear the word of life. That word which is able to transform us is Jesus! Sickness, poverty, failure, stagnation bow at the mention of that name; Jesus.

In our relationship, health, jobs, academics, family, Jesus is what we need. Jesus is the answer and solution to our needs. Jesus is the good part, that which is to our advantage which will not be taken away from us.

One thing I have asked of the Lord, and that I will seek: That I may dwell in the house of the Lord in His presence all the days of my life, To gaze upon the beauty, the delightful loveliness and majestic grandeur of the Lord And to meditate in His temple.

Life without Christ is full of crisis. Beloved choose the good part and experience life to the fullest.

Take care and know that love and blessings are here for you.

Two words. Part one.


I’m going to start this story by introducing the main character, a 14 year old girl – we’ll call her Jane – who was about to be woken by her mother with 2 words that would turn her life upside down.

“Dad’s dying.”

Those 2 words made Jane gasp – eyes wide she sprung out of bed, hands covering her mouth.

What? That can’t be. He promised he’d be ok. No, you’ve got it wrong, you heard it wrong. Half asleep, you didn’t hear it right. It’s ok.

It’s not ok.

“The taxi is on its way.”

Get dressed. Deodorant, you’re sweating. Teeth, have to brush your teeth, mouth tastes like ass. Where are your glasses? Can’t go without them, can’t see without them. Hair, find a brush – get a hair tie, just chuck it up out of your face.

Taxi here.

What! I’m not ready! I’m ready to…

Yesterday a regular customer came in, that oh so familiar face of that regular pain in my backside! He knows the prices, he’s been here a million times, yet he always acts like he’s in shock by it.

Every. Single. Time.

“What?!” He says staring at his order. “That’s fucking ridiculous!” His plum in mouth way of speaking makes the swearing sound less harsh but you know he’s doing it for dramatic effect. He must have said that at least three times while muttering his utter nonsense. You know, I was stood there thinking ‘I’m pretty sure I’m supposed to be responding right now’ but there were no words. I knew that I was meant to be humouring him, pacifying him, but… nothing! The words just weren’t there. I was just stood there looking at him like a complete dumb ass. I must have looked uncharacteristically confused or something because…
