Forming Great Habits Doesn’t Mean We Work All the Time


Forming great habits doesn’t mean we work all the time.

I come from a family of hard workers. I married a hard worker. Problem is, with those sorts of great examples surrounding me:

  • I can sometimes feel as if I’ll never be enough.
  • My house won’t ever be clean enough.
  • I haven’t decorated my house enough.
  • I haven’t worked out enough.

It’s the Never Enough syndrome. Can you relate? Often we shun reading self-help materials because we feel like a failure as soon as we read the title. Things like:


  • Get Organized in Thirty Days
  • Be the Best You in Three Months
  • You’re a Loser, but We can Make You a Winner


I totally made those titles up. You get the point, right?

You don_t have to work all the time.


38 Now while they were on their way, Jesus entered a village [called Bethany], and a woman named Martha welcomed Him into her home. 39 She had a sister named Mary, who seated herself at the Lord’s feet and was continually listening to His teaching. 40 But Martha was very busy and distracted with all of her serving responsibilities; and she approached Him and said, “Lord, is it of no concern to You that my sister has left me to do the serving alone? Tell her to help me and do her part.” 41 But the Lord replied to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and bothered and anxious about so many things; 42 but only one thing is necessary, for Mary has chosen the good part [that which is to her advantage], which will not be taken away from her.”- Luke 10: 38-42


Can you imagine, ladies. Jesus comes to your home in the flesh? I will confess there are many times when I have been the Martha, cleaning up and being distracted with serving instead of focusing on the guest or my family. Mary chose the good part. She chose to focus on Jesus. We can learn a few things from Mary. Take the time to listen to Jesus. Take the time to focus on your family instead of getting caught up in the service. You don’t have to work all the time.
