Making The Pieces Fit

A very elderly man with bad eyesight calls his neighbor and says, "Please come help me. I have a neat jigsaw puzzle, and I can't figure out how to get started." His neighbor asks, "What is it supposed to be when it's finished?" The man says, "According to the picture on the box, it's a rooster." The neighbor comes over and looks at the pieces on the table, then looks at the box, then turns to the man and says, "First of all, no matter what we do, we're not going to be able to assemble these pieces into anything resembling a rooster." “Now,” he says, "let's put all the Corn Flakes back in the box."

Making all the pieces fit can be a lifelong struggle. In Luke 10:38-42 Jesus visited in the home of Martha. Martha's sister, Mary was present and was listening to the teaching of Jesus, while Martha "was distracted with all her preparations." Martha spoke to Jesus and asked Him to tell Mary to help her. Jesus said to Martha, "You are worried and bothered about so many things; but only a few things are necessary, really only one, for Mary has chosen the good part, which shall not be taken away from her." It should be pointed out that there was nothing evil about what Martha was doing. This was a case of misplaced priorities. Getting the pieces in order, in just the right place is important. Some things, though not evil, are just not as important as other things. Mary had made a conscious choice and Jesus says it was a good choice. When we come to hear what God has to say, like Mary, we also are making the right choice. Come and learn of the Lord's will for your life.
