"Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away"

Much can be learned from the first story of Mary and Martha, both devoted followers of the Savior.  First the story: "Now it came to pass, as they went, that he [Christ] entered into a certain village: and a certain woman named Martha received him into her house.

And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus’ feet, and heard his word.

But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me.

And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things:

But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her."  (Luke 10:38-42 )

Are we choosing the good part?  Often it is hard when the cares of the world press down upon us.  When that happens, do we take a moment, and reconnect with our Father in Heaven, and let the Atonement of Jesus Christ work in our lives?

As we do that, our cares diminish, they get put in proper perspective, and we remember the most important things in life, serving others, our family, and especially the things of God.
