Are we being pushed out of the Presence of God by distractions? It could be seemingly harmless amusements & diversions that take up a large quantity of our time…there by not allowing us to get into the Bible or pray daily. Other distractions could be perplexing events in our life that have us looking everywhere for answers but where we should…namely asking God for His perspective & clarity. Finally, distraction can come in the form of preoccupation with the superficial glamour & glitz of the world…and thus losing our attention to the eternal things of God. In Luke, we see Jesus coming to Mary & Martha’s house for a meal. Mary chose to sit at the feet of Jesus & listen while Martha was distracted & caught up in all the busy work. Mary stayed true to her priorities…while Martha’s got diverted by distractions.
