TITLE: Hold The Phone, Martha!

This is a short devotional.
Luke 21:34

"And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts
be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life,
and so that day come upon you unawares."

I have a pet peeve called "call waiting" in which the person who called you puts you on hold, waiting aaaand waiting, wasting your time at their convenience. I find it extremely rude.
We were praying for needs to be met one morning and I felt like God was calling this generation a "call waiting generation". All He had to say was that for me to get the picture. We petition God for the remedy to all kinds of requests, but when God tries to instruct us we don’t have time and put Him on hold. We don’t seem to realize that what we are doing is putting our answer on hold! “God, drop everything and concentrate on my call…oh could you hold a minute…I have something else to do…hold again please, I’m really busy today…I just don’t have time right now…I’ll call you back, but you know the problem…work on it…Bye!” He knows the problem all right, now if we could just get a clue. Putting God on hold is definitely not going to get the answer.
It isn’t just this generation though. Call waiting back in Jesus day was called Martha.
It’s funny but Martha didn’t get it. She thought the problem was Mary wasting time at Jesus feet. Poor frustrated Martha, but just imagine had she a phone in her day! Not only would she have missed the answer to her problems, but the food would have been delayed while putting Nadine on hold to talk to Rita!
The call of God is waiting…Will you pick up or put Him on hold?

Food for thought:
Cares of life mean: μέριμνα, which is distractions of living. What is distracting your time in the Lord?
