It is interesting we find the phrase “one thing” in the Bible quite a few times. The Psalmist testified, One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after!” (Psalm 27:4). “One thing you lack,” said Jesus to the self-righteous, rich, young ruler (Mark 10:21). “One thing I know!” exclaimed the man who had received his sight (John 9:25).  “But one thing I do…” Paul stated to the Philippians (3:13).  And Peter wrote: “But, beloved, be not ignorant of this

There is only one thing worth being concerned about.   Luke 10:42

Back to Basics - Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus

Many can recognize this familiar portion of Scripture where Jesus uttered these words to  Martha, in a specific circumstance, see here.  But they have a timeless value when applied to any situation that worry or upset us.  It is a message that expresses the heart of God to all His children.

Consider the “many things” that worry and upset us.  “There is only one thing worth being concerned about.” I think we all know what that is.  As we seek first God’s kingdom and His righteousness He will take care of which otherwise robs us of the wonderful peace He has to give. Let’s get back to the basics.

Turn your eyes upon Jesus!
