“But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.”
King James Version (KJV)

"There is only one thing needed"...This was Jesus' response to Martha.That one thing needed is saving one's soul,in other words Salvation.Also,continually feeding the soul with its desired food,which is the word...The word of God. Now,why didn't Mary join Martha for the preparations? It's clear in verse 39,which says "Her sister,Mary,sat at the Lord's feet,listening to what He taught.This tells us that,Mary was more concerned about saving her soul and knowing the word of God,rather than running after worldly pleasures to satisfy the flesh,which stands for the preparations the bible talks about.Beloved,I encourage you to embrace the freely given salvation the Lord has brought to us.

In life indeed, we are so much preoccupied with a lot of activities that could sustain our lives and improve our living standards. We are so much concerned about what to eat, what to wear, what to possess and the means to satisfy all these unlimited human wants. But we often take for granted the main thing which is salvation our eternity. We have forgot that Christ came with the sole aim of salvaging our souls from distruction by the devil, the ruler of the earth. However, the moment we begin to preoccupy ourselves with the word of God, his word will transform us into becoming salvaged christians. Lets focus on Jesus Christ, our redeemer.

Sometimes we do things which we perceive to be what God wants, like Martha, whereas what we think to be none significant, listening to Him, is what He wants us to be.Man you position according to where God sits, stands and or moves.

"But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her." (Luke 10:42)
There are many things one can have, and also lose.
You can have health, wealth, admiration, family, and friends.
You can have service and works and occupation.
I have been reading "The Three Musketeers," and I saw the sequels, "Ten Years Later," and, "Twenty Years After." I thought, "Wait To You Come To Thirty Years," should be a title of a book.
Within twenty years, there are many pivotal decisions. Did you choose God's way over the world's way? Did you keep the faith, even if it meant not being accepted, or even if it meant being rejected?
Did you keep the faith, when if you didn't, your choice would wound someone; but, if you kept the faith, it would mean your death?
Would you rather have blood on your hands, or your blood on the ground?
Would you rather "get ahead," or, honor your head?
I am curious to find out what happens in the books, "Ten Years Later," and, "Twenty Years After." I am only on chapter eight in the book "The Three Musketeers," but I can already see choices people are making, and, in such, the people they are.
When all is said and done, one thing cannot be taken away from those who choose "that good part."
Many things will pass away - in ten years, in twenty years - in a lifetime; but "that good part" will not be taken away.
Abide in Jesus, and "that good part" cannot be taken away.
