KEEPING THE FIRST THING FIRST: LESSONS FROM MARY AND MARTHA

The story of Mary and Martha serves as a powerful reminder of the importance of keeping the first thing first in our lives. By prioritizing our relationship with God, we can avoid a victim mentality, take responsibility for our choices, and find fulfillment in aligning our actions with His will. Let us learn from Mary’s example and make intentional efforts to sit at Jesus’ feet, allowing His teachings to guide our lives.

GET YOUR GIFT OFF THE SHELF

Just like a valuable item that has been broken into pieces, our gifts can still be repaired and put back together. God’s grace and love are always available to restore and renew what has been damaged or neglected. It is never too late to pick up the pieces and start using our gifts again.

JOY TO THE WORLD

Celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ is more than a Christian holiday or a Christian festival. It is an opportunity to pause and give thanks for the love, hope, and joy found in Jesus – our Saviour and friend. As we exchange gifts with loved ones, it is out of remembrance of the gift God gave us in Jesus. The gift is that we are loved, are never alone, and can have hope for the future.

FIGHT PROCRASTINATION

People also procrastinate because they ignore the value of time.  Everyone has a limited time to spend on earth. In light of this, time is the most valuable commodity you have. It’s not money; unlike time, you can borrow money, save, or earn more. You can’t do that with time. Every single second you waste is gone forever. It is important you value time and use it wisely. Seneca said, “While we waste our time hesitating and postponing, life is slipping away.”
