Perform or Marinate

I was going to write on Psalm 40:1, but I already have.  But while I was thinking through that passage this morning Luke 10:38 – 42 came to mind.
We are not called to perform for Christ but to marinate in His presence...
If you are like me you are more like Martha than Mary.  The waiting that the Psalmist describes in Psalm 40:1 is really what Mary is doing here.  She is at the feet of Christ soaking, marinating in His presence.  Martha is busy serving, ministering.

Jesus says that marinating is better than performing.  I have trouble remembering that.
