Hey Kids! Bulletin Article on July 21
HEY, KIDS! – It has been very hot outside the last few weeks and we do many things to keep us cool in the hot summer heat. Swimming pools are one of the absolute best ways to keep cool during the summer months. Just imagine getting a new swimsuit and swimming goggles, blowing up brand new float toys and beach balls! You are ready after all that hard work to dive in that pool. Wait!! After all that preparation you forgot the most important thing the one thing that is critical to swimming… WATER!! You forgot to fill the pool with water. It can be so easy to forget the very most important thing in our daily lives when we spend so much time preparing with other things. That is exactly what today’s bible lesson talks about.
As Jesus and disciples were traveling, they came upon a town where Martha lived with her sister Mary. The sisters welcomed Jesus into their home and Martha immediately began to work very hard to get supper ready for Jesus. while Martha busied herself in preparing the meal, Mary sat at the feet of Jesus and listened to his teaching.
Martha was so upset that her sister ws not helping her, she went to Jesus and said “Do you see my sister not helping me? Tell her to help me.” Jesus answered “Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about too many things. Only a few things are important, perhaps one. Mary has chosen that one thing, and I will not take it away from her.”
Many of us make the same mistakes that Martha made. We get so busy working, going to school, playing, or using electronic devices that we often forget the most important thing. We forget to spend time with Jesus! We must be very careful that we don’t get so busy doing good things that we leave out the best! After all, Jesus is the most important thing!!
Praying can help you remember throughout your day. Dear Jesus, help us to remember that you are the most important thing in our lives. Don’t let us get so busy with other things that we forget to spend time with you. Amen.
