Be Not Martha

Be Not Martha
Wes Tillett (Luke 10:38-42)

Don’t let me be Martha
Don’t let me forget
To enjoy your presence, Jesus
At your feet to sit
Don’t let me be so busy with
Livin’ my life
I neglect to come to you to
Take my showers of light

Jesus says, “Only one thing is needful and it will not be taken away.
But you are so worried, busy, and upset about all these secondary things.
Better by far to sit at my feet to seek and soak and listen in awe
Than to run blindly with your agenda with which you shut me out of your heart.”

Don’t let me be Martha
Distracted and peeved
Don’t let me think I’m superior
With my self-righteous deeds
Don’t let me look down my big ol’
Self-righteous nose
At all of those siblings of mine
Who take a different approach

He must become greater and I, I must become less
