Scripture reference: 1 Thessalonians 5:11 (ESV)
As today is Thanksgiving Eve, I am encouraging you in addition to stirring up something special in your pots, also to stir up something special in another person.
Sometimes, it’s only lending a listening ear or planting seeds of inspiration and wisdom.
Quite honestly, I have spent too many holidays stirring my pots and trying to ensure everything was perfect that I often overlooked the day’s purpose. This reminds me of Mary and Martha, Lazarus’ two sisters, and how their worship of Jesus differed.
As we know, Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead. Shortly thereafter, Mary and Martha threw a huge celebration dinner for Jesus. During the party, Martha stirred around, ensuring everything was perfect, while Mary sat at Jesus’ feet, listening to his every word.
When Martha complained to Jesus that Mary spent her time sitting there while Martha spent her time stirring around, Jesus responded that Mary had already discovered the right course to take. As you think about that, remember these words:
“Therefore encourage one another and build one another up…” 1 Thessalonians 5:11 (ESV)
