The Folgers coffee jingle says “the best part of waking up is Folgers in your cup.” I like that happy jingle. Many others identify with it too, because it has helped Folgers sell a lot of coffee.
Luke 10:38 – 42 records a visit Jesus made to Mary and Martha. Mary found “the best part” of life and Jesus said it would not be taken from her. Read about it from several different translations below.
King James Bible
But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.
English Standard Version
But one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the good portion, which will not be taken away from her.
New Living Translation
There is only one thing worth being concerned about. Mary has discovered it, and it will not be taken away from her.
Contemporary English Version
But only one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen what is best, and it will not be taken away from her.
What was the best part? Just being with Jesus. Folgers coffee helps wake us up to a brand new day physically. Being with Jesus awakens us to a brand new life. Or, you could say “The best part of life.” Why? Because He is life and we must find our life in him.
Make time for “The best part” in your daily life.
It is an honor to serve as your pastor.
