Thought for Today: Distraction

Every day is different. Today the sun is shining, but after putting my head outside I was very quickly back inside because I was hit with a strong cold wind.
Thought for today distraction
So, I had a few options:
  1. To put more layers on and still go for a short walk
  2. Phone a friend for a chat
  3. Do some house work
  4. Read a book.
The last two options reminded me of the story of Mary and Martha – friends of Jesus. While Mary sat and listened to Jesus, Martha moaned about being left with the cooking and cleaning. Who was right? And who was wrong? Neither, because later when Jesus met Martha again and asked what she believed she said, “You are the Christ, the Son of God” and then she called Mary to see Jesus again.

Prayer

Lord Jesus, even when we are distracted from you, we thank you that your Holy Spirit will lead us back to knowledge of you. Amen.
