One of the most beautiful histories in the Holy Scriptures is the one that speaks about Martha and Mary. I would like to share my meditation with you. Let’s learn with them.
Luke 10 ( The Message)
Mary and Martha
38-40 As they continued their travel, Jesus entered a village. A woman by the name of Martha welcomed him and made him feel quite at home. She had a sister, Mary, who sat before the Master, hanging on every word he said. But Martha was pulled away by all she had to do in the kitchen. Later, she stepped in, interrupting them. “Master, don’t you care that my sister has abandoned the kitchen to me? Tell her to lend me a hand.”
41-42 The Master said, “Martha, dear Martha, you’re fussing far too much and getting yourself worked up over nothing. One thing only is essential, and Mary has chosen it—it’s the main course, and won’t be taken from her.”
The Lord Jesus rebuked Martha because she was way to busy to listen Jesus words. Isn’t the way that we do it sometimes? We allow distractions, commitments to divert us from what is really important: Our communion with God.
