Luke 10:42 (NLT) — 42 There is only one thing worth being concerned about. Mary has discovered it, and it will not be taken away from her.”

Some people say that they can learn a lot about a person by looking at the entries in their checkbook. I believe you can tell a lot about a person by what concerns them. I think that is what Jesus was also saying here in this verse.

Our relationship with Jesus is worth our concern. Good can keep us from best. It was a good thing that Martha was doing in preparing a meal for Jesus. The best would have been to listen to the meal Jesus was preparing for her. Man shall not live on bread alone but on every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.

Jesus is saying that if we take the time for him that time will not be taken away from us or be wasted time. Are you concerned about your relationship with Jesus or do you consider it a waste of time in view of the other things you could be doing?

John 17:3 (NLT) — 3 And this is the way to have eternal life—to know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, the one you sent to earth.

1 John 5:11 (NLT) — 11 And this is what God has testified: He has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.

1 John 5:12 (NLT) — 12 Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have God’s Son does not have life.

John 5:24 (NLT) — 24 “I tell you the truth, those who listen to my message and believe in God who sent me have eternal life. They will never be condemned for their sins, but they have already passed from death into life.
