One of the most beautiful histories in the Holy Scriptures is the one that speaks about Martha and Mary. I would like to share my meditation with you. Let’s learn with them.
Luke 10 ( The Message)
Mary and Martha
38-40 As they continued their travel, Jesus entered a village. A woman by the name of Martha welcomed him and made him feel quite at home. She had a sister, Mary, who sat before the Master, hanging on every word he said. But Martha was pulled away by all she had to do in the kitchen. Later, she stepped in, interrupting them. “Master, don’t you care that my sister has abandoned the kitchen to me? Tell her to lend me a hand.”
41-42 The Master said, “Martha, dear Martha, you’re fussing far too much and getting yourself worked up over nothing. One thing only is essential, and Mary has chosen it—it’s the main course, and won’t be taken from her.”
The Lord Jesus rebuked Martha because she was way to busy to listen Jesus words. Isn’t the way that we do it sometimes? We allow distractions, commitments to divert us from what is really important: Our communion with God.

“Cursed is the ground for your sake;
In toil you shall eat of it
All the days of your life.
Both thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you,
And you shall eat the herb of the field.
In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread
Till you return to the ground,
For out of it you were taken;
For dust you are,
And to dust you shall return.”
Either we live in the “Garden of God” or in this World as Outcasts!…Look up to all areas of your life and you will have an answer!…
”So He drove out the man; and He placed cherubim at the east of the garden of Eden, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the way to the tree of life.”

Earwax, also known by the medical term cerumen, is a yellowish waxy substance secreted in the ear canal of humans and other mammals. It protects the skin of the human ear canal, assists in cleaning and lubrication, and also provides some protection from bacteria, fungi, insects and water. Excess or impacted cerumen can press against the eardrum and/or occlude the external auditory canal and impair hearing.
There is a worse wax than the earwax. It makes’s one spiritual impaired, unable to hear God’s voice.
It’s Pride!…The “Spiritual Wax!…”
Pride makes one egoist, over-confident,self-trusting and self-sufficient. Pride makes a barrier to God’s voice because one will refute whatever God teaches, with their own voice.
How do you know if you have Spiritual Wax?
Let’s identify it. Word’s such as:
- I know it already
- It’s not for me
- Later on
- I’m to busy for that
- I rely on myself
You must take your “Cotton Bud” to clean this “Spiritual Wax”- This Cotton Bud is called Humbleness. If there is no humbleness towards God, then you know you are “Spiritual Impaired!…”.
Give a glance to below.
“Oh, that My people would listen to Me,
That Israel would walk in My ways!
I would soon subdue their enemies,
And turn My hand against their adversaries.
The haters of the Lord would pretend submission to Him,
But their fate would endure forever.
He would have fed them also with the finest of wheat;
And with honey from the rock I would have satisfied you.”
