Sometimes all that’s left are crumbs. Those are the best part. Just think about it. You’re eating freshly baked bread (sorry, carb-watching friends), and you reach for another slice but to your dismay, it’s all gone. But, lo and behold! A few specks of yummy goodness remains!
39 She had a sister called Mary, who was seated at the Lord’s feet, listening to His word. 40 But Martha was distracted with [a]all her preparations; and she came up to Him and said, “Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to do all the serving alone? Then tell her to help me.” 41 But the Lord answered and said to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and bothered about so many things; 42 but only one thing is necessary, for Mary has chosen the good part, which shall not be taken away from her.”
Our service, which is represented by that savory bread example, can be exemplary. But there’s more to it than that. We need to know how to take a moment to be spiritually intimate with the Lord, not for selfish reasons or show, but for loving Him.
For many that may be like crumbs because, at large, intimacy and being known by the Father isn’t discussed like that—it’s overlooked. However, the crumb is mighty to the bread because missing one minuscule part of a loaf means the loaf isn’t whole. Similarly neither are we when we neglect what matters most.
Think about it.
