GUARDING YOUR HEART
GUARDING YOUR HEART 4: DISTRACTION
JAKE STIMPSON | VICTORY | HEART | FREEDOM | MARY | MARTHA | DISTRACTION
In the Gospels, we find the story of two sisters, Mary and Martha. Jesus comes to their home, and Mary is so in awe that she breaks cultural norms to sit at the feet of Jesus and hear Him teach. Martha, busy getting things ready for Jesus, is distracted and annoyed at her sister. It’s easy to sympathize with Martha, who was just trying to get things done, but in her busyness, she missed out on the greatest gift of all, the fact that Jesus Himself was in her home. In the midst of endless opportunities to be distracted, we’ve got to guard our hearts or we too will miss the one thing that really matters, knowing Jesus.
