Martha was so busy serving that she did not have time to learn at the feet of Jesus. If you are a worker or minister of God in your church or anywhere, and you are so busy with different programs, preparations and meetings that you don’t have good time for personal Bible reading, Bible Study and good time to pray, because many things are in your care, and many people are waiting for you, it means you are distracted and not devoted. It is of necessity to build yourself up daily in the Lord with good time for personal Bible Study and prayer, before you can build others in the kingdom of God. The day you get so busy that you skip your personal devotional time in order to serve, is a day of distraction from God, even if people are blessed mightily in your ministration or serving.

You hear of people organizing programs because that's what people are doing and so and so

I was meditating on this same thing and I related it to labourer

Jesus said He will build his church

But there are some men of God, yea, they are called, but they can't wait to see the church grow, so they hasten things

While the man sitting and waiting patiently on God is merely sitting there, his church has a few members but. God is pleased with his ministry than the other who is trying to please Jesus without listening to what Jesus really wanted from him

Its like, a labourer is invited to work on a farm, its expected the labourers should ask the farmer, the portion to clear, but he feels because of his intelligence, he can clear the land without the builders instruction on where to clear

I think this is killing the church today
