Getting Off Your Treadmill to Learn From the Master

In Luke 10 we read a story about Mary and Martha.  Martha is distracted as she prepares the big dinner.  She approaches Jesus and says, “Lord, doesn’t it seem unfair to you that my sister Mary just sits here while I do all the work?  Tell her to come and help me.”

“My dear Martha,” the Lord answers, “you are worried and upset over all these details.  There is only one thing worth being concerned about.  Mary has discovered it, and it will not be taken away from her.”

Mary sees the Big Picture.  There is a time to work, strategize, and complete daily tasks, but it is far more important that we spend time with the Lord.

Applying this to your business, there needs to be time when you get out of your office to build your relationships.  Learn from outside experts; get strategies and tips on how to improve your business and make it better.  Gain from the wisdom and experience of fellow members, and when you can, contribute to the needs of others.  It is in giving that we receive.  The Lord will notice your efforts and will bless you even more.
