Strategic positioning

Her sister, Mary, sat at the Lord’s feet, listening to what he taught. Luke 10:39

When we feel overscheduled, overcommitted and pulled in several directions the temptation is to sit near the door so it’s easy to slip out. Mary made a choice and sat right at the feet of Christ where she was going to have to climb over everyone to get out.  This is strategic positioning, especially when there are lots of distractions.

Lord, help me to stay centered on the most important things regardless of how long my list becomes.
