We think of ourselves as the “Church at the Point!”
You know, this is not a story about right and wrong or responsibility and irresponsibility but about finding out what Jesus desires of us instead of giving him what we feel he deserves from us. Frenetic activity is not more spiritual than quiet repose.
Holman Christian Standard Bible
38 While they were traveling, He entered a village, and a woman named Martha welcomed Him into her home. 39 She had a sister named Mary, who also sat at the Lord’s feet and was listening to what He said. 40 But Martha was distracted by her many tasks, and she came up and asked, “Lord, don’t You care that my sister has left me to serve alone? So tell her to give me a hand.”
41 The Lord answered her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and upset about many things, 42 but one thing is necessary. Mary has made the right choice, and it will not be taken away from her.”
