I try not to get too religious on this blog. It’s about productivity, lawyering, technology, and my random babbling.
But today’s Gospel from Church really applies to all that. Bear with me here.
I’m doing my best to stay calm for the bar exam, but it ain’t easy. And then some great words of Christ were in today’s Gospel. Basically, we shouldn’t be worried and anxious about petty things. Only one thing really matters, and it isn’t the Virginia bar exam.
The specific passage is Luke 10:38-42 (emphasis added):
As they continued their journey he [Jesus] entered a village where a woman whose name was Martha welcomed him.
She had a sister named Mary (who) sat beside the Lord at his feet listening to him speak.
Martha, burdened with much serving, came to him and said, “Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me by myself to do the serving? Tell her to help me.”
The Lord said to her in reply, “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and worried about many things.
There is need of only one thing. Mary has chosen the better part and it will not be taken from her.”
This principle is important to remember throughout our lives. No matter what religion you subscribe to, it’s what matters. The small things on this world are important, but not the most important. They’re fleeting, and they always fall into non-existence. Only one thing exists forever.
