“The Right Thing”

Lk. 10:38-42 “Mary has chosen the right thing and it will not be taken from her.”

Mary is criticized for not being “busy”. Jesus points out she has chosen the “right thing”. People always criticize me and are puzzled by what I do. . I am asked “what service do you do?” “how many people do you serve?” “what do you actually do?” After awhile I get irritated, rather then just shrugging my shoulders, for you see like Mary in the eyes of Jesus I am doing the “right thing.” Tonight I have given food, blankets, and socks to over fifty people, I have spent time talking and visiting with them–does it get them off the streets? well “it is the right thing.” Rather then look at numbers and characterize people by numbers, I would rather see them as people on the journey, and simply walk with them. Deo Gratias! Thanks be to God!
