Luke 10:40 – There was/is nothing wrong with the service that Martha and we perform. There was/is nothing wrong with being in “much” service. The problem comes when one is “cumbered” in service.
Cumbered refers to a drawing away, being distracted, being pulled from what is important.
There is nothing wrong in serving The Lord Jesus Christ, this is what we have been called to do. But when it comes at the expense of neglecting to sit a Jesus’ feet then it becomes a problem.
We should never allow ourselves to be cumbered from being in communion with God. There needs to be a balance of Service and Sitting at Jesus’ feet.
