Thank you, Pastor Ryan, for teaching us about attentiveness. We were so happy to see our friendly superhero who taught us that being quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to get angry helps to prevent us from hurting one another. Just like Jesus loves and listens to all those who earnestly seek him, we will strive to be attentive to those around us and be God's blessing to them. 

Chapel with Pastor Dave
 

Luke 38-42 Now as they went on their way, Jesus entered a village. And a woman named Martha welcomed him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord's feet and listened to his teaching. But Martha was distracted with much serving. And she went up to him and said, “Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her then to help me.”  But the Lord answered her, “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things,  but one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the good portion, which will not be taken away from her.”

Thank you, pastor Dave, for teaching us what attentiveness means in the eyes of the Lord. Jesus was traveling in Bethany and welcomed into the home of Mary and Martha. Mary immediately sat at the feet of Jesus so she could learn more about things of God. Just like Mary and Martha learned how important it is to find time to be with Jesus and listen attentively to what He says, we want to pay more attention to God and others. We can practice this by listening attentively to our teachers and parents at school and home.
