Being Present to Others

October 8, 2019

“Martha, Martha, you are anxious and worried about many things.”  (Luke 10:38-42)

We all have a bit of Martha in us, don’t we? We get so caught up in the stuff of our lives, that we lose focus.

Maybe, like Martha, we worry about all that we have to do. Or perhaps our minds are full of “could haves” and “should haves” – we spend our time worrying about things that happened in the past over which we have no control or we anxiously look ahead to what may or may not happen in the future.

So much of our time is spent looking back or looking forward that we lose sight of the here and now. When we are not living in the present, we are not being present to others. In addition, we are not being open to the presence of God.

Remember, God comes to you everyday, disguised as your life.
