Martha and Mary

Luke 10:38-42 (ESV)
38 Now as they went on their way, Jesus entered a village. And a woman named Martha welcomed him into her house.
39 And she had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet and listened to his teaching.
40 But Martha was distracted with much serving. And she went up to him and said, “Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her then to help me.”
41 But the Lord answered her, “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things,
42 but one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the good portion, which will not be taken away from her.”

Martha is a doer; Jesus healed Mary, Mary was grateful for healing.   They were both believers. When Jesus is teaching drop everything listen to him.   Jesus tells Martha get line Mary.   Jesus loves Mary, Martha and Lazarus.  Jesus returns them to resurrect Lazarus.

    Paul,

    This is ironic, I just read about Mary and Martha in Luke 10 today. Jesus’ commendation of Mary encourages us in this busy, driven age to spend time with Jesus, the personal Savior.
