Luke 10:42"But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her."
As we enter a new year, I hear the voice of our Lord saying to His Church just as He spoke to Martha in Luke 10:42, "But one thing is needed"
What's that one thing? It's intimacy with God. It's spending time alone with Him everyday. It's loving Him more than any other thing in the world. It's the place where He opens up His Word to us. It's the place where we worship Him. It's the place where we commune with Him. It's the place where we are changed from the inside out. Where we become more like Jesus, full of love, full of mercy, full of humility, full of grace.
In our busy lives, we will have to do this "one thing" on purpose. We will have to make changes to our schedules. But as we do, we will be ever changed!
