God cares about you listening to Him, not what is being done in His name...

Luke 10:38-42 (NASB)

Martha and Mary
38 Now as they were traveling along, He entered a village; and a woman named Martha welcomed Him into her home. 39 She had a sister called Mary, who was seated at the Lord’s feet, listening to His word. 40 But Martha was distracted with all her preparations; and she came up to Him and said, “Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to do all the serving alone? Then tell her to help me.” 41 But the Lord answered and said to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and bothered about so many things; 42 but only one thing is necessary, for Mary has chosen the good part, which shall not be taken away from her.”

How often do I worry about doing things in God's name that I neglect taking the time to listen to Him?  Perhaps I should put aside worrying about what to do for Jesus, and simply listen...
