Full of Care

problem-solution picture

Are you troubled about things? Are you full of care, anxious and worried about things? Martha had that problem. Jesus came to visit and she got all flustered about fixing the food and cleaning the house and all the things she might have thought she needed to do. And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things” (Luke 10:41). Things easily disturbed Martha even to the point of trying to get Jesus to tell Mary to help her because she was doing nothing to help but sat there listening to Jesus teach. Some people allow trouble to bring them to the point of depression and their day is one long anxiety attack. That’s not how Jesus meant a Christian’s life should be lived. Mary was taking the spot of rest. She had cast her cares on Jesus and was taking in of the life-giving word of Jesus. That’s the key. Anxiety and a troubled heart needs to be replaced with the Word of God. Jesus didn’t chastise Martha. He just reminded her that living the abundant life does not include having a troubled mind and a heart full of care. Give it to Jesus and sit at His feet to hear the overcoming words of grace.
