Question of the Week #3

Which Bible character do you identify with most? Is there one that you can really relate to and understand? What is it about the story or character that gets to you?

I have to say I most identify with Martha. When I know I should be taking the time to sit at Jesus' feet, I am busy with household chores. My list grows by the day as does any mom's whether she be a stay-at-home mom or a working mom. The list never shortens. To stop long enough to spend time in the Bible, I have to remind myself that this is about Spiritual health just like sleep is for physical health.

I feel I am doing better about this, but then I have been at it for all of 22 days.

Isn't there a book about or titled being a Mary in a Martha World? I find this is the struggle on a daily basis...To pray, read God's word, and follow Jesus and still get my work done. I suppose it could be considered one of man's curses upon leaving the Garden of Eden. And it is easier said than done, but try, I shall.
