At times distractions can be a problem in our relationship with our peers and with God. In fact, that was the concern Jesus had for His friend Martha. She "was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made" for a meal. It is stated in the scriptures that when she complained about her sister Mary's lack of help, Jesus told her, "Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her"

I am sure that Martha's distractions were well-intentioned, However, she was missing the opportunity to actually listen to Jesus and enjoy His presence. He is deserving of our constant attention, and He alone can fully enable us to overcome any of life's distractions.

If you want to be miserable, look within; distracted, look around; peaceful, look up.
